Airport Rules & Regulations

By Cristian cartagena

Liquids rules

You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces

Empty Your Pockets

It is part of the airport routine to empty your pockets at the security line, but there’s always the risk that a rogue penny or errant house key tucked into a back pocket may sound alarms while you’re passing through a scanner

Ditch the Bling

Exercise your right to accessorize once you arrive at your destination and take the “less is more” approach for airport travel. Heavy jewelry, including necklaces, earrings, watches and bracelets, could trigger an alarm in a metal detector or body scanne

Expose Yourself With AIT

If all goes well, you can avoid an airport pat-down if you opt for the full-body scan and pass through with no issues

Bypass the Airport

The only true way to avoid the full-body scan and the pat-down is to hit the open road in a car, bus or train.
