Updated August 15,2013: The TSA has added additional items to the list of prohibited items and now requires shoes be removed at checkpoints. As advised by the US Department of Homeland Security, guests bound for the USA will be subjected to additional security measures. Liquids, aerosols and gels, in limited quantities, are safe to bring aboard an aircraft. 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 for carry-ons = 3.4 ounce (100 ml) bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100 ml) container size is a security measure.
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.
3-1-1 is for short trips. If in doubt, put 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.These include pat down check by security personnel and physical inspection of their cabin baggage and personal property prior to boarding.Guests are advised to note the following, to ensure a smooth screening process: only one item of hand luggage is allowed for all passengers travelling on flights to / from North America.Liquids and gels you wish to take in your hand luggage have to be packed in individual containers of max 100 ml. These containers have to be packed together in a single transparent re-salable plastic bag with a capacity of no more than 1 liter per passenger.We thank you for your cooperation and will do our best to minimize any inconvenience to advise you before you travel if any changes.
