Holiday Travel Tips

Holiday Travel Tips

In preparation for the upcoming holiday travel season, Yeager Airport would like to remind passengers to be prepared for the increased passenger volume at the airport.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has recently announced that they are expecting a 4% increase in holiday travel over last year. Airports are expected to screen more than 26.8 million passengers and airline crew members during the busy holiday season.

Travelers should plan to see an influx of traffic on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day and the Sunday after the holiday. To keep up with the influx of traffic, airlines in the U.S. are expected to add around 850 extra flights.

Yeager Airport has some tips for dealing with the crowds:

  • Arrive at the airport early. We suggest at least 90 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time to ensure you’re at your gate in time for boarding.
  • Those picking up passengers should utilize the free 20-minute lot which is available for use while you wait for your loved one. Please do not park along Airport Road or curbside.
  • We encourage passengers to sign up for trusted traveler programs such as TSA Pre✓®. The program allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on, in select TSA airport checkpoint screening lanes.
  • Passengers should review all rules for carry-ons in advance of their flight at: https://www.tsa.gov/.
  • Please check yeagerairport.com as well as facebook.com/flyCRW for airport updates, and with your airline regarding possible delays.

As a reminder, beginning October 1, 2020, it will be mandatory that air travelers flying within the United States present a Real ID-compliant driver’s license or another acceptable form of identification such as a passport or military ID. To get the REAL ID gold star, West Virginia residents will have to appear at their local DMV in person with the required documents. There is a ten-dollar surcharge in addition to standard fees to get the new license. A standard license without the gold star will not be a valid option to enter the TSA checkpoint after October 1, 2020.

We hope you have a safe and happy holiday season and thank you for Flying CRW!

Real ID – October 1, 2020

Real ID – October 1, 2020

If you have flown recently you may have noticed signs presented at the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) checkpoint informing travelers of upcoming changes to the ID requirements when flying. It is important to know what these new requirements mean for you and how they may affect your upcoming air travel.  Here’s what passengers need to know about the new Real ID.

REAL ID: WHAT IT MEANS FOR COMMERCIAL AIR TRAVELERS

Beginning October 1, 2020, it will be mandatory that air travelers flying within the United States present a Real ID-compliant driver’s license or another acceptable form of identification such as a passport or military ID. The same will apply to anyone who wants to enter a federal facility or military base. By the time this is implemented in 2020, all states will be required to comply with the new standard. While some states began issuing compliant licenses a few years ago, others have just begun, so you will want to check your ID before flying without a passport. It is also important to note that the Real ID is not a replacement for a passport. Passengers who are flying internationally will still need to present a passport at the TSA checkpoint.

What Is Real ID and Why is it Required?

The Real ID Act, which was created as a result of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, was passed by Congress in 2005; it will be fully enforced across all 50 states beginning October 2020. The security requirements of the Real ID Act will enhance and improve commercial aviation security by prohibiting federal agencies from accepting licenses and identification cards from those that do not meet these standards. Anyone entering a federal facility (including airports) must present a REAL ID or another acceptable form of identification. The technology that the identification cards present are an additional level of security that is harder for forgers to replicate.

How will I know if my ID meets the standards? – Check for the star!

If you’re worried that your identification may not be REAL ID compliant, check for the star located in the upper portion of the card. West Virginia’s compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards have a small gold star in the upper right corner.

To get the REAL ID gold star, West Virginia residents will have to appear at their local DMV in person with the required documents. There is a ten-dollar surcharge in addition to standard fees to get the new license. A standard license without the gold star will not be a valid option to enter the TSA checkpoint after October 1, 2020.

To find more information on how to obtain a Real ID-compliant driver’s license in West Virginia, you can visit the West Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles website.

If you find that you still have questions concerning the new ID requirements you can contact us by phone or send an email to info@yeagerairport.com.
