Planning ahead and packing properly can speed up the screening process and ease your travel experience. Know what you can pack in your carry-on and checked baggage before arriving at the airport by reviewing (or searching) the list below. Information on Special Procedures is also available at TSA.gov.
TSA determined that liquids, aerosols and gels, in limited quantities, are safe to bring aboard an aircraft. The liquids rule limits the total amount each traveler can bring.
For items not listed, simply snap a picture or send a question to AskTSA on Facebook Messenger or Twitter. Questions will be monitored from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET weekdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends/holidays.
Even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns. Read about civil penalties for prohibited items.
This list serves as a reference.
The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
