The TSA will give advice on what is and is not allowed in carry-on bags.
Travel tips include:
- Early Airport Arrival: account for delays in traffic, parking, rental car returns, and air-line checking.
- Use Social Media: tweet or message AskTSA if you encounter issues receiving TSA Pre✓® on your boarding check.
- Prepare For Security: avoid overpacking your carry-on bag and consider checking bags to make things easier. Make sure IDs are valid and boarding passes are readily available to speed things along.
- Follow The Liquids Rule: liquids, gels, aerosols, creams, and pastes must be 3.4 ounces or less and all containers must fit inside a single quart-sized plastic bag and be placed in a bin for carry-on baggage screening. This includes sunblock and tanning lotions.
Guests will also learn about the benefits of TSA’s pre-check program, which allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case, and keep size compliant liquids/gels in their carry-on bag to lessen hassle.
Those guests will also be encouraged to enroll in the program.
A temporary TSA enrollment center will be open through May 18 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.MORE NEWS: Police: Woman Shot 8 Times, Killed In North Philadelphia Near William Dick School
