Important Travel Information

To better ensure an on-time departure, our goal is to close the jetbridge door 10 minutes prior to departure time. This allows all customers to board and stow their belongings.

From November 22, 2014 - January 8, 2015, there are limitations on boxes and baggage when traveling to certain Mexican, Latin American and Caribbean destinations. Learn more about Checked Bag Limitations.

Check your ticket before you travel on a connecting flight, as you may be connecting on a flight operated by one of our oneworld® or codeshare partners. To find out, look for the words "operated by…" on your ticket. Learn more about codeshare flights.

Strollers that are large, non-collapsible or over 20 lbs. must be checked at the ticket counter. Learn more about traveling with infants or children.
