Expanded Security Checkpoint Featuring US Airways Priority Queue and Shuttle Ticket Counter Now Open at Reagan National

ARLINGTON, Va., March 17 /PRNewswire/ — An expanded Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Security Checkpoint and a US Airways priority queue line is now open at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Additionally, the full-service US Airways Shuttle ticket counter has been relocated back to the Departure Level at Reagan National’s North Pier, beginning this week.

The TSA Security Checkpoint has expanded from four to six lanes, which will assist in reducing wait times for customers during peak travel periods. As with other airports with US Airways priority queue lines, the queue is available during peak travel times for First Class and Envoy Class customers, as well as Dividend Miles Preferred and Star Gold members.

Washington customers holding confirmed boarding passes for the next available Shuttle departure to Boston or New York also may use the priority queue line. This provides the same timesaving benefit for Shuttle customers as in Boston and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

The ticket counter, which was moved on Dec. 14, 2004, as part of a project by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to accommodate an expansion of the North Pier security checkpoint, now is located one level down from the main US Airways ticket counter, and adjacent to the Baggage Claim Level escalators.

The full-service ticket counter for Shuttle customers departing Washington includes full check-in, ticket purchase and flight change services. Kiosks also are available at the Departure-Level Shuttle ticket counter for customers without checked bags.
