There are plenty of things to plan once you've booked a flight, such as airport parking and accommodations. In order to pass through security without a hitch, it's best to take note of and avoid the things that could set off alarms. Continue reading to find out more.
Unpack Large Electronics
Don't try to put your carry-on bags through security with large electronic items, such as laptops, DVD players, or video game consoles, inside. Instead, place these items onto the x-ray belt in a separate container before you walk through the screening area. Don't wrap gifts beforehand either, because you might have to unwrap them for airport security inspectors.
Set Metals Aside
If the airport security alarm goes off for any reason, the TSA officers will need to inspect you. To prevent this from happening, empty your pockets of all metal materials, such as coins, keys, and mobile devices. Place those items in a bowl on the x-ray belt, along with any bracelets, rings, necklaces, or earrings that you might be wearing. Also consider wearing slip-on shoes to the airport, so you can easily place them—along with your belt—onto the x-ray conveyer as you go through security.
Prepare Yourself and Your Party
On the day of your flight, you should always arrive at least an hour early and have your I.D. on hand to show at the checkpoints. If you're bringing a baby along on your flight, remove him or her from the stroller and carry him or her through security. The same goes with any pet you might bring—remove the pet from the carrier and carry him or her through; carriers and strollers should be placed on the x-ray conveyer.
