What Can I bring Through the TSA Checkpoint?
You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. Placing these items in the small bag and separating from your carry-on baggage facilitates the screening process. Pack items that are in containers larger than 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters in checked baggage.
Any liquid, aerosol, gel, cream or paste that alarms during screening will require additional screening.
For full details on what can and can't be brought through the checkpoint visit the TSA "What Can I Bring?" webpage.
Travelers can contact TSA 72 hours prior to traveling with questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint. You may call (855) 787-2227 or email TSA Cares.
New technology continues to be a major priority for TSA. Here are just a few examples of technologies that are changing the way we do business: 1) Computed Tomography (CT) produces high-quality, 3-D images for a more thorough visual analysis of a bag’s contents. 2) Enhanced Advanced Imaging Technology (eAIT) safely screens passengers without physical contact for threats such as weapons and explosives, which may be hidden under a passenger’s clothing. 3) Credential Authentication Technology (CAT) machines automatically verify identification documents presented by passengers during the security screening process.
What do I need to Know about "REAL ID"?
The 2023 Real ID implementation deadline has been postposed again until 2025.
Currently, a valid government issued photo identification, such as a driver's license, state identification card, or passport is required upon check-in for any passenger eighteen or older. On May 7, 2025, all identification will need to be real ID compliant or passengers will not be able to board any domestic airline flight.
