Airport Security


 

The airport’s number-one priority is to ensure the safety and security of all airport patrons. It is also important to us that your safe travels be pleasant and enjoyable.

To aid this process, please review current security policies and procedures. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is responsible for the security checkpoint. Questions pertaining to prohibited items, traveling with liquids, and traveling with children should be directed to their agency. The TSA website is full of helpful information aimed at easing the stress of travel.

In addition, please remember to arrive and be checked in a minimum of one hour prior to your scheduled flight to assure you will make it through the security checkpoint in a timely fashion.

Liquid Rules
Every traveler is allowed to bring one small bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams, and pastes through the checkpoint, but the 3-1-1 rule applies: Liquids must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container; must be in 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. Consolidating these containers in the small bag enables TSA officers to screen them quickly.

Declare larger liquids, or pack them in your checked luggage. Medications, baby formula/food and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in a quart size bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint. TSA officers may need to open them for additional screening.
