In 2017, the US Department of Homeland Security and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced additional security processes for all flights travelling to the USA to be introduced in a staged approach.
Extra security measures will be in place for customers flying to the USA from 21 April 2018.
Airport check-in and bag drop for US bound flights from Auckland, Rarotonga and London Heathrow will open four hours prior to departure, so please allow additional time to complete check-in formalities and proceed through security. Customers are strongly advised to allow extra time to complete all check-in, security and boarding requirements and to be aware these may cause additional congestion.
Customers will be required to carry a printed or digital copy of their flight ticket, and may also be asked to switch on all electronic devices, so ensure that these are fully charged prior to any US bound flight.
