Baggage & Luggage

Security regulations require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to screen 100% of checked & carry-on baggage. The airlines and TSA work together to make the baggage handling process as efficient as possible.

We advise passengers to arrive one hour and thirty minutes prior to their scheduled flight departure to ensure they and their bags have enough time to go through the screening process and be transported to the aircraft.

Due to the changes to the ban on liquids carried on to the plane by a passenger, the TSA is requesting passengers to declare items in excess of three ounces before they enter the security checkpoint. If you plan to carry baby formula/food, medications or other liquids (for medical needs/conditions) onto your flight, please print and fill out this declaration form then bring it with you to the security checkpoint.

Prohibited items are weapons, explosives, incendiaries, and include items that are seemingly harmless but may be used as weapons -- the so-called "dual use" items. You may not bring these items to security checkpoints without authorization. The TSA is requesting that passengers leave their checked baggage unlocked to avoid the necessity for security screeners to forcibly unlock their luggage should it require inspection. Visit the TSA Web site for more packing and traveling tips for passengers.

delayed, lost or damaged luggage

If your luggage is damaged, or does not arrive with you, it is very important that you report the problem in person to an airline representative (office or ticket counter) within four hours of your arrival.

At the airport, airline personnel will give you important phone and tracking numbers that will be useful in locating your lost baggage.

Please note: You will encounter significant delays retrieving your bags if you leave the airport without reporting the loss to airline personnel at the airport.
