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.

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.

Additional Rules and Tips for TSA Screening

  • Passengers may bring liquid hand sanitizer containers up to 12 oz. in their carry-on bag 
  • 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.
