How many ounces are allowed? Can I bring food onboard? What items have to be in checked bags? If you’ve forgotten the rules, don’t fret, many of us have. And, some of the rules have changed when we weren’t looking. Here are some things to keep in mind when packing.

Before Packing

  • Liquids, gels and aerosols packed in carry-on must follow the 3-1-1 liquids rule:
  • 3.4 ounces or less per container
  • 1 quart size, clear, plastic, zip top bag (all liquids must fit in bag)
  • 1 bag per passenger
  •  Review the prohibited items list for both carry-on and checked baggage.
  •  If purchasing a baggage lock, be sure to look for those that are TSA recognized.
  •  Tape a card with your name and contact information on your electronics. 

When Packing

  •  Pack items in layers (shoes one layer, clothes one layer, electronics one layer, etc.).
  •  Firearms are only allowed in checked baggage and must be unloaded, placed in a locked, hard-sided container and declared to your airline.
  •  All fireworks contain explosive materials and are not permitted in checked or carry-on baggage.
  •  Pack large electronics on top layer of carry-on for screening accessibility.
  •  Place your 3-1-1 bag with liquids, gels and aerosols in the front pocket of your carry-on for accessibility.
  •  If traveling with a pet, be sure to bring a leash so carriers can be properly screened.
