TSA Liquid Carry On Rules, Restrictions Ease in 2010

Tightened airport security has put restrictions on the amount of liquids you are allowed bring on a flight with your carry on luggage.  To frequent flyers, this is old news.  For someone unfamiliar with checkpoint procedures, knowing the allotments allowed by the TSA for liquids will help make your travel experience a little easier.

The TSA has developed the 3-1-1 Rule to help passengers remember the rules of carry on liquids.  The 3-1-1 Rule is as follows:

(3) You are allowed to carry liquids in 3.4 oz bottles or less

(1) All bottles must be placed in a 1-quart sized zippered plastic bag

(1) Each passenger is allowed to bring only 1 bag on board

The Eagle Creek Pack It Liquid / gel Set is a zippered tote with a set of 4 reusable thermo polyurethane bottles that adhere to the 3-1-1 Rule and are carry on friendly.

The term liquid applies also to gels and aerosols.  Larger quantities of liquids must be place with checked in luggage and then announced to airport personnel.

3-1-1 Exceptions:  Certain special needs liquids are allowed in larger quantities exceeding 3.4 oz and do not have to be confined within a zippered plastic bag.

These items include:

  1. Baby formula/juice/food and breast milk
  2. Prescription medications and over the counter drugs
  3. Liquids, including water, juice, or liquid/gel nutrition for passengers with medical conditions

Liquid Regulations May Change by Fall 2010

According to the TSA, the allowances for liquids may soon increase by the end of 2010.  The reason provided by the TSA is that advances in x-ray technology will soon be able to distinguish which liquids are harmful and which are safe.  With this new technology, liquids will still have to be checked in a separate bin, but the TSA will no longer limit liquids to 3 oz bottles.
