Airport Security

In an effort to maintain the highest possible standards in safety and security, Sun Country Airlines partners with the safety and security organizations at all of the airports in our network. Below are some helpful tips to help you successfully navigate the security checkpoints at the airport we serve.

Additional Screening of Tablets & Laptops on International Flights
Effective July 20, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are requiring additional security measures on flights from international destinations into the U.S., including heightened screening of any portable electronic device (PED) larger than a cell phone.  For more information, visit

Safety tips

  • Be aware of suspicious activity including people acting strangely or any out-of-place items
  • Keep your carry-on bags, boarding passes, and valuables with you at all times as they could be tampered with or stolen
  • Do not carry anything for another person, especially someone you do not know

Personal identification

Travelers 18 years of age and older must show valid federal or state government-issued photo identification, (valid driver's license, valid passport, or a valid military identification card) at the ticket counter and as they go through security check points. Passengers traveling internationally are required to show a valid passport and may need to present a visa, or any other required documentation depending on the destination. Passengers without proper identification will be denied boarding.

Security checkpoints

All passengers must present a valid boarding pass in order to pass through security checkpoints.

Passengers without a printed or mobile boarding pass will have to check in first at designated Sun Country ticket counters in the airport lobby and provide appropriate identification.

Only passengers needing special assistance can be accompanied beyond the security checkpoint. See a Sun Country ticket counter agent for a gate pass.
