Security Tips

Acceptable Checkpoint Identification
Driver's licenses and passports are the preferred identification at security checkpoints. TSA has a list of all acceptable forms of identification.

Prohibited Items
What to know before you go: Read the TSA’s list of permitted and prohibited items.

Traveling with Children
The TSA is required to screen everyone, regardless of age (even babies), before they can go through the security checkpoint.  Read these tips on how to make this process go more smoothly. Security officers will approach children gently and treat them with respect. If a child becomes uncomfortable or upset, security officers will consult parents about the best way to relieve the child's concern.

Travelers With Disabilities and Medical Conditions
TSA has established a program for screening of persons with disabilities and their associated equipment, mobility aids and devices.
