TSA update on small knives on aircraft
TSA recently announced changes to its prohibited items list, including allowing small pocket knives to be carried on aircraft. This change has been delayed and current policies remain in effect.
Packing your bags and carry ons
Take a few minutes to learn about what to expect at the airport. Learn about checked baggage fees and excess, oversize and overweight baggage.
- The FAA allows one piece of luggage and one personal item (like a purse or briefcase) per person. All carry-on bags must fit under the seat in front of you or in the overhead bin.
- Don't put batteries, medicines, keys or important documents in your checked bags. Keep them with you in your carry-on bag.
- Pack your 3.4 oz. (100ml) containers in a single, clear, one-quart zip-top plastic bag. Empty containers (that could contain liquids) are not allowed; and neither are partially used larger containers.
- Only one one-quart plastic bag is allowed per passenger, and the contents of the bag must fit comfortably inside.
Check the name on your ticket
The TSA requires that the name on your ticket matches the name on the government ID you show at airport security exactly.
