With welcome news for frequent travelers, the TSA now allows laptops to remain inside bags that meet new checkpoint friendly guidelines. The TSA has links to this information at the following link: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/checkpoint-friendly-laptop-bags
Guidelines for keeping safe, getting through screening and what you’re allowed to bring on a plane are found at the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) web site at: http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information
At this site you can learn more about what to expect, what to bring and when to arrive. Although our lines are shorter and check-in is much quicker than at other larger airports, please leave yourself enough time pending any unforeseen contingencies.
