The United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has established an enhanced screening process at Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Hobby Airport (HOU).  All customers are now required to obtain a boarding pass before entering the security checkpoint.

Air Travel Previous to this change, ticketed passengers without boarding passes could enter security checkpoints.   Passengers traveling on wholly domestic itineraries are encouraged to use self-service check-in machines or curbside check-in service to obtain a boarding pass.  Otherwise, before going to security, passengers must visit an airline ticket counter and obtain the newly required boarding passes.  Gates and private clubs inside security will still be able to change boarding passes.

Ellington Field (EFD) had already required boarding passes at the security checkpoint.

Continental Airlines has announced that it will discontinue service between Ellington Field (EFD) and Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) on Sept. 7, 2004.  Email your discontent with this to Continental Airlines Customer CareYou can call 1-800-WE CARE 2 (1-800-932-2732) or fax 713-652-4997.
