Frequently Asked Questions

Air Travel

Whether you have flown a million times, or are taking your first flight, El Norteno Travel Agency can answer all your questions to ensure you have a pleasant experience traveling to your vacation destination. 

Whether you are flying domestically or internationally, you are required to have valid identification to board a plane. 

Domestic Flights: 

  • Valid ID (Flight ticket should have your name exactly as it is on your passport or government ID.)

 

International Flights:

  • Valid passport (Book format only)
  • Valid ID card
  • Personal permit to go internally in the country you are traveling to. (Permit requirements vary by country. El Norteno Travel Agency can direct you in obtaining the required permits to the country or countries you are traveling to, if necessary.)

 

Please note:

  • Flights are considered domestic when you are a citizen of the country you are flying in. (ie: If you live in the U.S. and are traveling from any airport in the US to anywhere in the same country.)
  • Regardless of where you travel to, your flight ticket should have your name exactly as it is on your passport of government ID.

Every airport and traveler is different. When traveling from a busy airport or terminal, it is important to arrive as early as possible. 

A rule of thumb, is to arrive at the airport at least 2-3 hours before your flight. This allows you to take into consideration luggage check-in, security check lines, and any other situations that may cause any delays. It is also important to plan ahead and ensure that you have proper and timely transportation to the airport. 

When checking in for your flight, it is important to do so on time and as early as possible.

Therefore, we recommend checking in with the following options:

  • Your airline will send a reminder via email or text to the cell phone number you gave when you made the flight reservation, usually they do it 1 day before your flight departs from the destination, in which you will find a link where you must give click to check in. Note: This is the best option to avoid any delays in your flight.
  • You must arrive at the airport with enough time to prevent your place from being sold to another person, since the airlines consider that you will not arrive if you have not checked in in advance as in option 1, try to arrive 3 hours before at the airport and immediately check in. Note: This option is not recommended because you could miss your flight.

Absolutely! Airlines have made it easier to travel with your furry loved one. Before booking flights, it is best to check the airlines’ pet policies to ensure you are prepared. Most airlines will allow smaller dogs to travel in the cabin with you, while allowing bigger pets to travel in the cargo area. 

 

When reserving your flight, you have the option to choose to check-in luggage or travel with carry-on items.

Everything will depend on the option you select in your flight reservation as well as the options that the airline you are traveling on  offers for luggage since every airline has it’s own policies.
