TSA security measures in place; what you can and can not bring with you

Posted: Updated:

TSA is immediately implementing the following changes to airport screening procedures:

  • NO LIQUIDS OR GELS OF ANY KIND WILL BE PERMITTED IN CARRY-ON BAGGAGE.
  • SUCH ITEMS MUST BE IN CHECKED BAGGAGE. This includes all beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency.
  • Exceptions: Baby formula and medicines, which must be presented for inspection at the checkpoint.
  • Beverages purchased in the boarding area, beyond the checkpoint, must be consumed before boarding because they will not be permitted onboard the aircraft.
  • Passengers traveling from the United Kingdom to the United States will be subject to a more extensive screening process.

These measures will be constantly evaluated and updated as circumstances warrant.

How every passenger can assist in security:

  • Pack lightly, without clutter, to facilitate easier screening. 
  • Arrive earlier than usual at the airport. 
  • Cooperate with TSA personnel at checkpoints and with airline personnel at all gates. 
Be attentive and vigilant to any suspicious activity and report it to authorities.
