Vocabulary: In the Airport

When you go to the airport, you first need to check in. Find your airline, then go to the check-in counter. For international flights, you are required to present your passport, but for domestic flights only a photo ID is required. When you booked your ticket, you probably got a confirmation number. You should show this too, just in case. The airline agent will ask if you want to check luggage or if you only have carry-on luggage. You should check your large luggage, but you can carry smaller suitcases on the plane. After the agent gives you your boarding passes, you can go through security.
