Non-ticketed visitors to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) can access the post-security side of the McNamara and North terminals indefinitely.
Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) has extended the DTW Destination Pass program, which it launched as a pilot scheme in October 2019, with no end date set.
Those wishing to participate in the DTW Destination Pass program must still apply for a pass through the airport’s website the day before their planned visit. Applicants will receive an email notification advising of their approval status. If approved, they will receive detailed instructions electronically. All participants must submit to the same security regulations as passengers boarding an aircraft.
“The DTW Destination Pass program is averaging more than 60 applicants a day,” said WCAA security chief Debra Sieg. “The information we’ve received from participant surveys indicates that most approved applicants utilized the program to meet someone who was arriving at or departing from the airport. However, some wanted to watch planes or visit one of our dining or retail options.”
The DTW Destination Pass program is limited to 75 visitor passes per day. Passes can be used from 8:00am to 8:00pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
