TSA Has Tips for Passengers Headed to Airport

The TSA has advice for travelers headed to the airport for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Spokeswoman Sari Koshetz says passengers need to remember the 3-1-1 rule for carry-on luggage. It limits liquids, gels, and aerosols to 3-oz each in one, one-quart bag per passenger. Koshetz says even remembering where you put your water bottle can speed up the line. Koshetz says passengers often forget the water they may be carrying and while it only causes a brief delay, those delays add up.

Koshetz says most problems can be avoided if travelers arrive at the airport at least two-hours ahead of their scheduled departure time. She says people can forget how long it takes to park, get to the terminal, check-in, and then pass through security.

She also reminds travelers that any digital device bigger than a cell phone has to come out of your carry-on bag, unless you're a TSA Pre-Check customer.

More than 55-million Americans are expected to travel 50-miles or more over the Thanksgiving holiday. AAA says 4.5-million of those travelers will take to the skies. Their earlier surveys show that Orlando is the number one tourist destination for the long Thanksgiving weekend. Expect to battle the biggest crowds at the airport on Wednesday and Sunday.
