    Flying to Florida in April and again November from Chicago 2016. Am I going to need a passport?

     

    You will not need a passport in April. It is not known yet if you will need one in November. The TSA says it will give 120 days notice if they will stop accepting any drivers licenses. They as of yet have not given any notice to that effect.

    All US Licenses are still accepted and will be for at least the next 120 days, so you will be fine if you are traveling in February.

    As of 2016, are Illinois Drivers Licenses in compliance with The TSA and Homeland Security for domestic airline flights?

     

    Yes, they are still valid the TSA has said they will give the public at least 120 days notice and a firm date when they will stop accepting them. It is likely this will never actually occur.

     

    FLYING FROM CHICAGO TO TAMPA FLORIDA IN APRIL 2016. IS MY CURRENT ILL. DRIVER'S LICENSE GOOD FOR ID PURPOSES. PLEASE ADVISE.

    If I am flying from Maui to Honolulu and then onto San Francisco. It is a separate reservation. Do I need to go through security again in Honolulu and recheck my bags?

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    Hawaiian Airlines

     

    Then you don't have to do anything with your bags. You have to go from the interisland terminal to the main terminal and through security.

     

  • ID when flying from UK

    Other than passport is there any other ID required when flying from the UK (flight is on 21 Jan 16) as a connecting flight has to made to Kelowna (YLW) with little time to spare

     

    If you are a UK citizen you have to complete ESTA before your trip. If you are a Canadian citizen you just need your passport.

     

    I thought an ESTA was only required if you are visiting US, can you confirm this is the case as i'm staying with in Canada, thanks

    My daughter (WA) and my husband (GA) both need to fly with no time to get a passport. Was either state issued an extension on the 1//16 deadline?

     

    Georgia licenses are compliant and Washington was granted an extension

    My Mother was told when renewing her license that her OK DL would no longer be accepted as ID for flight as of 1-1-16. Is that correct?

     

    She is fine until at least October 2016. Oklahoma was granted a 1 year extension.

    With heighten security it took 3 hours to get to the gate, from standing in the 1st line to check in. No way to by pass these lines, luckily our plan took a delay because of so many passengers stuck in security.

    My husband has Traumatic Brain Injury and has little control over making comments that could raise red flags or just get him in trouble. Is there someway to be able to let Security know that prior to flight?

     

    Carry a letter from his doctor.

     

  • Flying From Madrid > Paris > Nantes

    I am already in the Schengen area, will I have to go through passport control or some other type of screening process now when I land in Paris? My connecting flight to Nantes is 1 hour later, so I don't want to have any issues missing the flight..

     

    No, there is no passport control when traveling between Schengen countries. You should have no issues as long as your flight from Madrid is on-time.

     

  • SJO > IAH > ORD

    Help! United 1490 to IAH has been delayed 26 minutes (now landing at 1734), leaving me 1 hour 40 minutes to get through customs/immigration in Houston and make it to UA 1027 (scheduled depart 1920). I have several checked bags. TSA prechecked, if that makes a difference, and both flights are on the same reservation. Can this be done?? Thank you!

     

    That should still be enough time. If your flight gets delayed more United has almost hourly flights from Houston to Chicago.

     

    now not landing in houston until 1759.. looking less and less likely that this is going to work. ugh!

     

    There's an 11:55 pm IAH-ORD flight that looks to have plenty of empty seats, so you'll get to Chicago tonight, just really late.

     

  • Airport arrival time for international flights
    Nov 27, 2015

    Why is the airport arrival time recommendation from international flights 2 hours but only 1 hour for domestic. It seems to me the process is identical for check in and security and you don't go through customs as a U.S. Citizen leaving from the U.S. Until you reach your destination.

     

    International flights do board earlier, however, yes, the process is otherwise exactly the same. You do not actually have to arrive 2 hours early for international flights with most airlines.
