You may check in online and print your boarding pass no more than 24 hours prior to your flight’s scheduled departure. Online check in is available up until one hour prior to the scheduled departure for domestic flights. Your confirmation code, first, and last name are needed for online check in.
In the event you are not able to check in online ahead of time, you can check-in with a Via Airlines agent directly at the ViaAir ticket counter. This should be done no later than one hour prior to your flight’s scheduled departure time as well.
ViaAir recommends arriving at the airport no later than one hour prior to your flight’s scheduled departure in order to allow enough time to clear the airport TSA security check point. A valid, government-issued photo I.D. (Driver's License, Passport, State-Issued ID Card) along with your boarding pass will be required for you to clear airport security.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has thorough screenings at the main security checkpoints of all U.S. airports. Anyone passing through a security checkpoint is required to have a government-issued photo ID and either a Boarding Pass or a TSA-approved Security Document. As a result, your security experience may vary by airport.
ViaAir has been working in cooperation with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to introduce Secure Flight, a federally mandated program designed to help enhance the security of domestic and international commercial air travel through the use of improved watch list matching.
ViaAir is now required to collect additional Secure Flight Passenger Data, which includes:
TSA has determined that making date of birth and gender mandatory data elements would greatly reduce the number of passengers misidentified as a match to the watch list when fully implemented. It is to your advantage to provide the above information to potentially prevent delays or inconveniences at your airport, especially for those individuals with similar names to persons on TSA watch lists.
