LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - TSA held a press conference Monday at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport to discuss important reminders for those traveling this holiday season.
Authorities want travelers to be aware of some important tips before heading to the airport this week. Some of them include:
- Remember 3-1-1 for carry-on luggage for non-exempt liquids:
3-ounce bottle or less for all liquids, gels, and aerosols ... placed in a 1-quart-sized clear, plastic zip-top
bag to hold all small bottles ... and only 1 bag per passenger
- TSA recommends that passengers do not travel with wrapped packages. IN order to determine if the contents of a package are a threat, a security officer may need to unwrap and inspect the item.
- TSA allows small snow globes in carry-on luggage when packed in passenger's plastic 3-1-1 bag. Snow globes that appear to contain less than 3.4 ounces (approximately tennis-ball size) will be permitted if the entire snow globe, including the base, is able to fit in the same zip-top bag as the other liquids.
-Food items, such as pies and cakes, are permitted but may require further inspection. If travelers are not sure if a food items is considered a liquid or gel, it is best to pack the item in checked baggage or ship it to a destination in advance.
