New Security Screening Procedures for Passengers at Reagan National Airport

 NEW SECURITY SCREENING PROCEDURES FOR PASSENGERS
AT REAGAN NATIONAL AIRPORT

Beginning on Tuesday, July 15th all passengers flying out of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport will now be required by the Transportation Security Administration to show a boarding pass and photo identification at the security screening checkpoints.

This requirement is already in place at Washington Dulles International Airport and many airports across the country as the TSA implements new security requirements.

Passengers may obtain boarding passes from the airline ticket counter, at curbside check-in counters or if available, at airline self-service ticket kiosks and on-line at the airline websites

As this new procedure is put in place on the 15th, passengers are asked to allow additional time prior to their flight in the coming weeks.
