According to new announcement from US Transportation Security Administration, air
travelers may now carry liquids, gels and aerosols in their carry-on bag when going
through security checkpoints. Formerly, US Transportation Security Administration
had announced that; passengers may not have liquids or gels of any size at the screening
checkpoint or in the cabin of the aircraft including beverages, shampoo, suntan
lotion, creams, toothpaste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency and
such items may be transported in checked baggage.
1. All liquids, gels and aerosols must be in three-ounce or smaller containers. Larger containers that are half-full or toothpaste tubes rolled up are not allowed. Each container must be three ounces or smaller.
2. All liquids, gels and aerosols must be placed in a single, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag. Gallon size bags or bags that are not zip-top such as fold-over sandwich bags are not allowed. Each traveler can use only one, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag and these bags will be provided by passenger.
If you need larger amounts of liquids, gels and aerosols such as toothpaste or shampoo, please place them in your luggage.
