Transportation Security Administration Issues New Air Travel Guidelines
In response to recent events in the United Kingdom, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) has raised the United States Threat Levels and implemented new air travel guidelines.
No liquids or gels of any kind will be allowed in carry on baggage. All such items must be checked before boarding the aircraft. This includes all beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency.
Exceptions include: Baby formula and medicines, which must be presented for inspection at the checkpoint.
Any beverages purchased in the boarding area and past the checkpoint must be consumed before boarding.
Passengers traveling from the United Kingdom to the United States may be subject to a stricter screening process.
