Before you Take-off
Security at the Airport
A few things you need to know whether you are a frequent traveler or a first-timer. These reminders should be helpful in making the experience at your “home” airport as pleasant as possible
  • check-in early: the airline or your travel agent can tell you requirements for this particular trip!
  • All forms and ID must be appropriate and current: valid for at least 6 months after you return. Proof of relationship to minor children and written permission from absent legal parents not traveling; have copies of ID.
  • Baggage should not be oversized or overweight. 50 pounds is the maximum weight per bag. Travel light!
  • Do not pack or bring prohibited items with you. Complete list of “permitted and prohibited items” can be found on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website
  • Checked baggage should not be unlocked or use the Sentry Lock System.
  • At security checkpoints you will be required to present both a Boarding Pass and a Photo ID.
  • When entering the security checkpoint, remove anything metal from your person: belt buckles, keys, jewelry, cell phones, loose change, pens, fanny packs, thick soled/heeled footwear or boots of any kind.
  • Only one carry-on bag and one personal item per passenger boarding the aircraft are allowed.
  • Do not pack valuables, medications or undevelopped film in checked baggage! Note: Cameras and film up to 1000 ASA are okay in x-ray machines at checkpoints.
  • Do not carry anything aboard that is not yours.
  • Do not leave bags unattended.
