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

  •  Hazardous Materials
  •   Many every day items used at home or work can be regulated as hazardous materials or dangerous goods. Many of these items are allowed in your baggage. Visit for more information and a list of items.
