When to arrive at the airport and Check in Information
Originating at Cortez
We request that you arrive 90 minutes prior to your flight, but no later than 1 hour prior to your departure time.
Check-in will close 45 minutes prior to departure time, to allow sufficient time for TSA screening. The TSA requires 45 minutes to complete the screening process for checked baggage. Passengers who have not checked in at least 45 minutes prior to departure will be unable to board the flight.
Passengers arriving at the 45-minute cutoff may not have enough time to complete the screening process and will be unable to board the flight if the screening process cannot be completed. No refunds will be given for missed flights due to late check-in.
Passengers connecting from other airlines with carry-on baggage only can check-in at the gate. Gate check-in begins 1 hour prior to departure time.
Passengers with checked baggage connecting from a United or American flight who have checked their baggage through to their final destination may check-in at the gate. It is your responsibility to ensure that your baggage is checked through to your final location. Passengers with checked baggage who are not connecting from United or American, or who have purchased separate tickets for their connecting flight must check-in at the ticket counter.
If your baggage is not through-checked by the originating airline, you must retrieve your checked baggage from the baggage claim, then check-in at the Denver Air Connection ticket counter with your checked baggage. It is your responsibility to leave enough time to complete security screening after checking in at the ticket counter.
