Liquids Rule
  •  
      When processing through a screening checkpoint, each traveler is allowed one bag in order to limit the total volume of liquids, aerosols and gels. Consolidating products into one bag and X-raying them separately from the carry-on bag enables security officers to quickly clear all items.
     
  •  3-1-1 Carry-Ons
     
  •  3-1-1 For Carry-Ons
  •   3 = 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume).
      1 = 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag.
      1 = 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.

  •  Long Trips
  •   3-1-1 is for short trips. If in doubt, consider putting your liquids in checked luggage.

  •  Declare Larger Liquids
  •   Medications, baby formula and food, and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint. Officers may need to open these items to conduct additional screening.

  •  Pack Safe
