Travel Tips: 3-1-1 liquids rule

When packing your carry-on bag keep in mind the 311 liquids
rule. Liquid, gels, aerosols, creams and pastes should not
exceed 3.4 ounces, or 100 milliliters per
container. This includes items such as toothpaste, gel deodorants, shampoos, lotions, and similar personal care items.
Consumables like bottled water, peanut butter and
jams, must also comply with the rule. All liquids must fit into one quart size clear plastic zip-top bag, and only one
bag is allowed per traveler. That’s 3-1-1. There are some exceptions if
you have special needs or children. You may bring prescription and over-the-counter
medicines, baby formula, breast milk, juice and other essential
liquids in quantities larger than 3.4 ounces. Please present these items to security officers at the checkpoint, because they may require alternative
screening. For more information click on the liquids rule page at
