What items are restricted through the security checkpoint?

For the safety and security of the traveling public, certain items are prohibited from being brought onto airplanes in carry-on and/or checked bags. To help you plan ahead and avoid the potential of additional screening, be sure to check out the prohibited items list from the TSA and pack accordingly.

Keep in mind that gels, liquids, and aerosols packed in carry-on luggage must be limited in quantity and follow the 3-1-1 rule - 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. The 3-1-1 rule is applicable for carry-on luggage only. There is no limit to the quantity of liquids in checked luggage. Visit the TSA website for more information about the 3-1-1 rule.
