TheU.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) offers the following travel packing tips and airport security information for airline travelers:
- Carry-on-baggage is a small piece of luggage you take on the airplane with you. You are allowed one carry-on in addition to one personal item such as a laptop computer, purse, small backpack, briefcase or camera case.
- Airport security personnel will screen any "carry-on" baggage that will fit through the x-ray machine, but it is up to each airline to determine whether the baggage fits the size restrictions for your flight. Check with your airline to make sure your carry-on meets the airline's size requirements before you proceed through the airport security checkpoints.
- 3-1-1 for Carry-ons = 3.4 once (100ml) clear bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear plastic zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin.
- Be prepared. Each time TSA searches a carry-on it slows down the line. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a faster and easier checkpoint experience.
Adult passengers (18 and over) are required to show a valid U.S. federal or state-issued photo ID in order to be allowed to go through the checkpoint and onto their flight.
Here is a short list of acceptable IDs:
- Driver's Licensed or other state photo identity cards issued by Department of Motor Vehicles (or equivalent)
- U.S. Passport Card
- U.S. Military ID (active duty or retired military and their dependents, and DOD civillans)
- Native American Tribal Photo ID
