In these times of uncertainty, air travel can be a frustrating maze of ticket lines, security checks and flight delays. The Department of Homeland Security has issued several recommendations that can save you from secondary screenings and maddening luggage searches.
1. Passengers should place all metal items in a carry-on bag while waiting in line. Avoid wearing metal jewelry, belts or clothing. Avoid over-packing luggage and keep presents unwrapped. If possible, use see-through bags for clothes and toiletry items. If your luggage is inspected, it will make it a quick job for security personnel.
2. Be advised to take all computer laptops and other electronic devices out of their cases while standing in line.
3. Any jackets or long coats should be taken off and ready to be screened.
4. Wear slip-on shoes. You will need to remove your shoes for security screening, and loafers or hush puppies will make the process easier.
5. All shampoos, mouthwash or other liquids must be in a container of 3.0 oz or less. The container must have the quantity (3 oz or less) marked on the label – otherwise it will be removed. Finally, all liquids must be placed in a quart-sized clear plastic bag to go through security.
