TSA Screening & Security

Preparing for TSA security screening will help your travels from Akron-Canton Airport go as smoothly as possible.

 

 

3-1-1 Rule for Carry-Ons

All liquids, gels and aerosols must be in 3.4 ounce (100ml) or smaller containers. Larger containers that are half-full or toothpaste tubes rolled up are not allowed. Each container must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or smaller. Passengers may bring liquid hand sanitizer containers up to 12 oz. in their carry-on bag.

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.

Each traveler must remove their quart-sized plastic, zip-top bag from their carry-on and place it in a bin or on the conveyor belt for X-ray screening. X-raying separately will allow TSA security officers to more easily examine the declared items.

TSA Guide

Additional Rules and Tips for TSA Screening

  • Consolidate bottles into one bag and X-ray separately to speed screening.
  • Be prepared. Each time TSA searches a carry-on, it slows down the line. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a faster and easier checkpoint experience.
  • 3-1-1 is for short trips. If in doubt, put your liquids in checked luggage.
  • Declare larger liquids. Medications, baby formula and food, and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint.
  • Come early and be patient. Heavy travel volumes and the enhanced security process may mean longer lines at security checkpoints.
  • TSA works with our airline and airport partners to anticipate peak traffic and be ready for the traveling public.
