Checking-In


Home / Travel Information / Checking-In
Customers may check in and print boarding passes for their flights online no more than 24 hours prior to the flights scheduled departure. Online check-in is available up until 1-hour prior to the scheduled departure for domestic flights. 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, passengers are able to check-in with an agent directly at the ViaAir ticket counter. This should be done no later than 1-hour prior to the flights scheduled departure time as well.

ViaAir recommends arriving at the airport no later than 1-hour prior to scheduled departure for a domestic flight in order to allow enough time to clear the airport TSA security check-point. A valid government issued photo ID (Driver's License, Passport, State Issued ID Card) along with your boarding pass will be required for clearing airport security.

Security Guidelines

TSA - Transportation Security Administration

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has thorough screenings at the main security checkpoints of all U.S. airports. Anyone passing through a security checkpoint will be required to have a government-issued photo ID and either a Boarding Pass or a TSA approved Security Document. As a result, a Customer's security experience may vary by airport.

TSA Secure Flight Program
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:

The TSA 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 the airport, especially for those individuals who have similar names to those on the watch lists.
