Holiday Travel Tips
Before you pack that hostess gift or favorite holiday treat in your carry-on, remember liquids, gels, and aerosols in containers larger than 3 ounces are not permitted through the security checkpoint. Never fear, cakes and pies are permitted.
We checked TSA’s list of holiday items that you should put in your checked bag, ship ahead, or leave at home:
- Cranberry sauce
- Creamy dips and spreads (cheese spread, peanut butter, etc.)
- Gift baskets with food items (salsa, jams, and sauces)
- Maple syrup
- Oils and vinegars
- Salad dressing
- Wine, liquor, and beer
Unwrap those gifts! You will have to wrap them when you reach your destination. Whether they are in your carry-on or checked luggage. TSA officers may need to unwrap a gift to take a closer look inside. Either ship wrapped gifts ahead of time or wait until you arrive at your destination to wrap them.
Consider using the family lane to go through security with ease. Family Lanes, located at every security checkpoint, allow families and travelers with special needs to go through security at their own pace. Individuals carrying medically necessary liquids, gels, and aerosols in excess of three ounces will be directed to these lanes. So, if you are traveling with liquid medications, baby formula, or baby food, look for the signage with the green circle at each security checkpoint.
TSA does not permit snow globes in carry-on baggage because they contain an undetermined amount of liquid. Snow globes are permitted in checked baggage.
Pat Downs and Advanced Imaging Technology
The introduction of aggressive TSA pat-down procedures and advanced imaging technology (AIT) units, which allow agents to see a naked image of the person in the scanner, were subject of much public debate. Remember these imaging devices are not in every airport. You do as a passenger have the option to opt out of the AIT line and undergo a pat down instead.
Since a foiled terrorist attack in 2006 involving explosives made from sports drinks, carry-on liquids have been severely restricted. If you have any large liquid, cream or gel items, such as wine, shampoo or non-essential medicinal ointments, to transport, place them in your checked luggage. Only 3.4-oz., “TSA-approved” toiletries are allowed through airport security, and each passenger can carry only one 1-quart, clear, plastic bag of liquid items. You can purchase 1-quart, zip-top bags at the grocery store or pharmacy, and they are typically available at the beginning of airport security checkpoints if you forgot to bring one.
TSA agents scrutinize object shapes on the X-ray screen to identify liquids in travelers’ bags. Objects that have no connection to liquids or creams, like folding fans packed in long slim boxes or even packaged sausages, can trigger a bag check. Similarly, while scissors up to a certain size are allowed, if they go through the X-ray machine, a TSA agent will search your bag for the scissors, get a ruler and measure them. When you pack your carry-on bags, look carefully at the items that you are packing. If something seems questionable or will need to be checked, take it out of your bag and put it through the X-ray machine in a tray.
