TSA Permitted & Prohibited Items

Planning ahead and packing properly can facilitate the screening process and ease your travel experience at the airport. Know what you can pack in your carry-on and checked baggage before arriving at the airport by reviewing the lists below. Even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns.

To help you avoid frustrating delays, we suggest that you review the TSA security policies and procedures, which are modified from time to time. They are available on the TSA website.
