|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.
The FAA has estabished a website entitled PackSafe. The website is an excellent resource to educate the flying public about hazardous materials. The website illustrates an array of dangerous items passengers may or may not carry in their checked and carry-on luggage. Click here: FAA PackSafe website.
|Does the airport close?|
The airport terminal building is open 24 hours, 7 days per week. The businesses that operate in the terminal building (airline ticket counters, car rental agencies, restaurant, etc.), however, do close usually after the last flight of the day. If you have questions about their specific hours, please contact them directly.
|What are the fees to check my luggage?|
Each airline sets the price for checked bag fees, and fees may vary based on the weight, size, and number of bags. Contact the airline you are flying for the most up-to-date baggage fees.
