Do you need a passport when flying from England to Scotland?

Not an April fools' joke, someone came to this blog searching for information on do you need a passport from england to scotland flying:

The answer is no, you don't need a passport for immigration reasons (i.e. you have already presented passport when entering the UK), but your airline may require a valid form of identification, e.g. British Airways states:

We do not require to see a passport or photo identification if you are travelling on purely UK domestic flights* (i.e. with no onwards international flights).

If you are collecting your e-ticket (for a UK domestic flight )at the ticket desk. For this you will need the original form of payment credit card with you.

*If the credit card holder is not travelling and you have an e-ticket bought by someone else, you will need to obtain the email itinerary receipt from the credit card holder, as it is required at check-in. You will need this document AND an acceptable form of identification at the airport.

Acceptable forms of identification are:
  • UK Driving Licence.
  • Executive Club membership card.
  • E-ticket access card.
  • Passport / National ID card.
  • Company works card / ID.
Please note: If you are travelling on a route that allows you to print your own boarding pass from home, you will be required to produce photographic ID at the airport.

Please also note: Children under the age of 16 years old do not require identification to travel within the UK.

EasyJet has stricter requirements; asking for a national ID card or passport from all passengers.

Please note I'm not a lawyer. Your mileage may vary.
