Preparing for Your Trip

  • Avoid wearing clothing and accessories that contain metal such as heavy jewelry and large belt buckles. Metal items will likely set off the alarm on metal detectors.
  • Carry-on baggage is limited to one bag plus a personal item such as a laptop, small backpack, briefcase or purse. For checked baggage, be sure to check with your airline on number of bags permitted and baggage weight restrictions.
  • All bags should contain identification tags in case your bag is lost or misplaced.
  • For a current list of permitted and prohibited items for carry-on baggage, visit the TSA website.
  • Leave all gifts and packages unwrapped. If the item is chosen for inspection, it will need to be opened and unwrapped.
  • Stay informed! Visit the FAA Airport Status page for real-time airport delays and closures. Check the latest weather forecast at for current conditions at your arrival and departure points.
