Traveling with Liquids?
- 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less for all liquids, gels and aerosols; placed in a
- 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag to hold all small bottles;
- 1 bag per passenger placed in a screening bin
Larger quantities of breast milk/baby formula and medically necessary liquids are permitted but must be presented to an officer for further inspection. For more information on traveling with medically necessary liquids, click here.
Traveling with Kids? Use the Family Lane!
There are Family Lanes at every security checkpoint allowing 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 also be directed to these popular lanes.
New Screening Technology, Changes For Children Under 12
TSA has implemented new procedures that reduce, though not eliminate, pat-downs of passengers 12 and under that would otherwise have been conducted to resolve alarms while also ensuring effective security measures. Passengers 12 and under are also able to leave their shoes on through security checkpoints.
