Q: What are permitted and prohibited Items?
A: prohibited items are weapons, explosives, incendiaries, and items that are seemingly harmless but may be used as weapons - the so-called "dual-use" items.
Q: How early should I arrive at the airport?
A: Check with your airline or travel agent to determine how early to arrive at the airport. Recommended check-in times differ by airline/airport and change during peak travel times.
Q: How should I pack before my flight?
A: There are different restrictions on what you can pack in your carry-on vs. your checked baggage. All of your baggage will be screened and possibly hand-searched as part of the new security measures.
Note: Each passenger is allowed 2 pieces of checked baggage. Weight restrictions are 50 pounds if you are flying domestically and 70 pounds if you are flying internationally.
Note: Each passenger is allowed 1 personal item and 1 carry on bag.
Q: What do I need to know if I am a Traveler with a Disability or Medical Condition?
A: In order to assist persons with disabilities or medical concerns, TSA has developed guidelines with input from various groups and have trained our airport screeners in the methodology needed to ensure secure and comfortable screening at all Security Checkpoints. please refer to the persons with Disabilities & Medical Concerns section of the TSA website.
Checked Baggage Q's and A's:
Q: Should I lock my luggage?
A: In some cases screeners will have to open your baggage as part of the screening process. If your bag is unlocked then TSA will simply open and screen the baggage.
However, if you decide to lock your checked baggage and TSA cannot open your checked baggage through other means, then the locks may have to be broken.
TSA suggests that you help prevent the need to break your locks by using a TSA recognized locking mechanism. TSA is not liable for damage caused to locked bags that must be opened for security purposes.
Q: Will TSA relock my bag if it is opened for screening?
A: TSA's highly trained screeners will take great care to secure your bag if they need t open it for screening. If your bag has a TSA recognized locking mechanism, and TSA opens your locked bag, they will re-lock the bag after the screening process.
Security Checkpoints Q's and A's:
Q: What should I expect atthe Security Checkpoint?
