Revised Airport Security Measures for Items Allowed on Board


Security measures at airports have been revised again. To quell the confusion, I've compiled a list of items now permitted on board flights departing from the United States and Canada.

The TSA has relaxed its list of prohibited items and now passengers are permitted to bring limited quantities of liquids and gels in carry on baggage. The following list applies to flights originating in the United States. The items will be permitted as long as the following conditions are met:
  • Individual containers must be 3oz or less
  • Containers do not need to be labeled
  • All containers must fit in a 1 quart, clear, resealable bag
  • The clear, resealable bag must be removed from the carry on and put separately in a bin to be screened
  • Existing exemptions such as medications still apply
