Baggage Claim Notice for Connecting Flights

United Airlines ticket holders with a connecting flight from sterile/TSA locations: If you have a ticket purchased from under one confirmation number, your checked baggage will automatically be transferred between United Airlines and Boutique Air flights, per United Airlines interline agreement. If your flight originates from a non-sterile location, you must reclaim and recheck your baggage with United.

Connecting Flights other than United Airlines: If you will be connecting on another flight operated by a different airline, you are responsible for retrieving your bags from baggage claim before re-boarding. As with travel between separate airlines, your baggage will not be transferred automatically.

Security Screening

All checked baggage is subject to TSA screening. You are encouraged to select luggage travel locks that can be opened with a TSA master key to help avoid having your lock cut off. If your property has been lost or damaged as a result of the screening process, you may file a claim with TSA.

Lost and Unclaimed Property

If your baggage has been lost, you can file a lost property claim report from your phone. You may search lost and found reports from U.S. airports and the TSA at the link above.
