I'm a 16 year old female and I'm wondering in order for you to fly do you need to have your social security card and your ID or a temporary ID? my mom said that she has to check me in the airport since I'm a minor (16) and everything for me to get on a plane. Is that true? I'm just traveling to meet a friend in Tennessee and I live in Texas.
A social security card is not valid ID. You should bring your student ID and a birth certificate and just tell the person at TSA that you're 16. If you have time, you could also get a state ID.
My brother will be traveling from houston to el paso texas on march 1. He is currently a patient at MD Anderson hospital and will be finishing his radiation treatment. Are wheel chair available at the entrance of the airport so that my brother can be taken to the departing gate? He is not able to walk on long distance.
You will need to contact his airline to request wheelchair service and note that he will need it at the entrance.
I am sailing out of Houston and flying home from Hobby on 2/5/17. That is Superbowl Sunday. I need to be off the ship by 10am and have an 11am shuttle bringing me to Hobby. I'm expecting to be there for 12:00. My flight is at 5:30pm. Would I be able to check in at that time? With luggage I don't really have anywhere to go plus with the area being busy with SuperBowl Sunday, I'm not sure I will be able to get around the area easily. Thank you.
Yes, if you are flying Southwest you will be able to check-in then.
I can check in 5 hours before the flight? Awesome. Thank you.
How far are the domestic gates from the new Hobby International terminal? Is 1 hour long enough to make this connection? I can't find a map on the new International terminal. I think I'll be arriving at gate 23 and departing from gate 2, both on Southwest.
HOU is still a small airport. The new International gates are in the same terminal as the rest of the gates. 1 hour should be enough time.
