Tips for Air Travelers

  • You may not pack liquid or gel substances in your carry-on unless they are in individual containers of 3.4 ounces or less and enclosed in one clear, quart-size, plastic, zip-top bag per passenger. Any larger containers of liquids and gels must be packed in your checked luggage. For more information, see Airport Security Q&A.
  • Be aware of restrictions on the size and number of bags you may bring onto your flight. Many airlines now charge a fee for every checked bag or have lowered the maximum permitted weight limits for checked luggage.
  • Do not lock your checked bags except with TSA-approved locks; otherwise, if your bag is selected for random screening, agents will have to break the lock to get inside.
  • Do not overpack your bag. Screeners will have a difficult time closing your luggage if selected for inspection, which will only lead to wrinkles and the potential for lost articles.
  • Carry all film with you onboard, as screening equipment for checked luggage can damage undeveloped film.
  • Place any packed belongings you don’t feel comfortable with strangers handling in clear plastic bags.
  • Do not stack books and other documents on top of each other; instead, spread them out throughout your bag.
  • Make your own must-pack list with our interactive packing list before your next trip!
