Latest TSA Security Directives

3-1–1 for Carry-ons

Air travelers may now carry liquids, gels and aerosols in their carry-on bag when going through security checkpoints.


With certain exceptions for prescription and over-the-counter medicines, baby formula and breast milk, and other essential liquids, gels, and aerosols, the following rules apply to all liquids, gels, and aerosols you want to carry through a security checkpoint.



3–1–1 for carry-ons

  • 3 ounce bottle or less
  • 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag
  • 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin.

One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3 oz. container size is a security measur

Come early and be patient. Heavy travel volumes and the enhanced security process may mean longer lines at security checkpoints.


Updates to the TSA Security Requirements(effective November 10, 2006):

Latest security bans according to the TSA Security Directives

Summary of Security Directive Changes for Flights departing from and within the U.S.



  • Effective November 10, 2006, the TSA has advised that travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3.4 ounces/100 ml or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic re-sealable bag. At the security checkpoint passengers will be asked to remove the clear plastic re-sealable bag from their accessible baggage and place it in a separate bin or on the conveyor belt for screening. X-raying these items separately will allow TSA security officers to more easily examine the declared items. In addition, prescription liquid, gel and aerosol medications, baby formula/milk/food, and diabetic glucose treatments must be declared at the checkpoint for additional screening if they are not included in the ONE QUART clear plastic re-sealable bag.



  • Passengers who attempt to bring undeclared liquids, gels, or aerosols into the sterile area without providing to the TSA for separate screening may be subjected to secondary screening.


  • Passengers who purchase liquids, gels, and/or aerosols in the sterile area are now allowed to take them onboard the aircraft.




  • Duty Free liquids, gels, and/or aerosols purchased inside the sterile area may be brought onboard the aircraft by passengers, and no longer must be delivered to the aircraft.

really i'm very disappointed
i was in the MS 986 airplane last Monday the one that was gonna collision with Lufthansa jet at JFK
all the news channels & videos are talking only about the Lufthansa airplane & no one is keen about the passengers that was in Egypt air flight
i'm an american citizen that was in it & i'm very frustrated about what happen & need to know as it was mentioned that it's the Egyptian pilot fault i need to know whose fault is it whether it is the mistake of the air traffic controller that was fired or the Egyptian pilot as what happened effected me badly
1st i have problems in my neck & the hard breaks made me in a very bad pain now & i will no longer ride any airplanes any more even i was suppose to return back to USA next year to make an operation their & now i changed my mind as i'll not go through this again
2nd i have high hearts beats & i used to take medicine for that & this may have caused me problems in the airplane
i need please to know whose fault is it & also need the recorders that was mentioned that you have for the air traffic controller that told the Egyptian pilot not to take this way or even to stop before 250 feet far from the run way as i'll take a legal action with the airlines if they are mistaken as i was gonna lose my LIFE & don't think it is a simple thing

Thanks & BR

I absolutely agree with you that this incident should not take place and that the airline should be more considerate with their passengers when it comes to what happened with Egypt Air. Unfortunately I am only here to answer your questions in a professional and timely manner regarding the airport. From my knowledge and experience only an airline is responsible for what happened. You can only talk to a legal professional and take it from there.

You may want to contact the agency that you purchased the ticket from to double check.

My friend has a JetBlue flight, Fla to Long Beach, and has a 2 and 1/2 hour layover. Does she have time exit the "arrivals" area, get a bite to eat, and get back through security. Are there any places to eat in/near the portion of Terminal 4 you are in before you go through security

Yes plenty of food courts prior to security at terminal 4.
