Baggage Delivery: Delayed or Lost Luggage

The airline on which you flew is the first point of contact regarding your lost or delayed baggage. Always make a claim with the airline representative at baggage claim immediately upon noticing that your baggage is not on the carousel. The airline will make arrangements with you and will provide you with their contact information so that you can call to check on the status of your bag or arrange delivery. If you are experiencing a significant delay in receiving your luggage, we can put you in touch with the airline counters to check status. (Note, the counter numbers are unlisted, so you must do this by calling the administrative offices at 309-764-9621.)
NOTE: During peak periods or weather events, this service may not be available at the request of the local airline counter.

Business Center "Destination Points"

The Quad City International Airport offers the Destination Points Business center, which is intended for use by our frequent fliers who have a minimum of 8 trips annually. It is not necessary to be affiliated with an airline club, to be a card holder.  Once inside the business center, enjoy a fireplace, cable TV, comfortable seating including office/work stations, as well as free coffee, cappuccino, and bottled water. We kindly request that you only take one bottle of water, per person, per trip.

By applying for the Business Center Easier Card, you will automatically be subscribed to the airport's periodic "E-Alerts" newsletter, which features airport air service updates, specials, contests and more. You may opt out at any time, and subscribing is not a requirement to receive a complimentary Easier Card.

The business center is located on concourse B, behind the frosted glass door. Contact Cathie Rochau, Marketing, at (309) 757-1743 or email to report trouble with your card.  Click HERE to Complete the Destination Points Business Center Easier Card Application

The public gift shop is located just south of the hanging airplane in the terminal. The CNBC gift shop is located just past security screening on Concourse B.


Lost & Found

Items found in the terminal or parking lot are logged and stored securely at the MAA offices. To inquire about a lost item, please call the administrative office during regular business hours at 309-764-9621 and press option 7 for the operator.  The Metropolitan Airport Authority maintains a log of all items found and retains them for approximately 2 months before they are donated to a local charity such as Goodwill or Salvation Army. Ownership must be verified before a lost item can be released.  Please remember we only log and store what has been turned in to us.

If you lost something at security screening, the TSA keeps items left at the checkpoint or in the bins. Contact their coordination center at 309-757-6617 or email  and describe what you lost in as much detail as possible including the date and approximate time.  For items lost on an inbound or outbound flight, please inquire with the airline on which you flew.
