Travel Tips & Security Information
General Travel Tips 
  • Travelers are reminded to arrive 90 minutes before the scheduled departure for their flight.
  • Allow extra time to arrive at the airport.
  • Check with your individual airline to make sure your flight is on time.

Baggage Tips
  • Never pack medicine, identification, money, or other valuable items in your checked baggage. Once your bag has been screened there is no way to retrieve anything from the bag.
  • You may be charged an additional fee if your bag weighs over 50 pounds. Check with your airline for baggage weight and size limits.
  • Many airlines are now charging to check baggage. Check with your individual airline for baggage policies and pricing. Airline counters do not have cash on hand, plan on paying with a check or credit / debit card.
  • If you lock your checked baggage use a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved lock or your lock might have to be cut off.

TSA Travel Tips
TSA would like to help you get through the security checkpoint quickly and have a safe flight to your destination. Visit TSA's webpage for up-to-date air travel tips.

Make Your Trip Better Using 3-1-1
  • 3-1-1 for carry-ons equals: 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in the screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. The 3.4 ounce (100ml) 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, breast milk, and baby formula and food 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.
