A Traveler’s Guide to Airport Security Screening

Take a look at the security procedures exercised or may be exercised at departure airport in the US.

1. Carry-On Baggage Screening

Electronics

Place your personal electronic devices larger than a cell phone like include laptops, tablets, e-readers and handheld game consoles into a bin for X-ray screening. Items like hair dryers, electric shavers or electric toothbrushes are exempted.

Food

Listen to the instructions of the TSA officer. In most cases, food or snacks such as fruit, health bars, and sandwiches can stay inside your carry-on bag. There are special instructions for liquids, gels, and aerosols, as well as for baby food, breast milk and medically necessary items.

Packing

If you are preparing for your flight, be aware that how and what you pack can impact the screening process. Be sure that you check for prohibited items and remember to follow the 3-1-1 liquids rule. TSA officers may instruct travelers to separate other items from carry-on bags such as foods, powders, and any materials that can clutter bags and obstruct clear images on the X-ray machine. Keep your bag organized to help ease the screening process as it takes time for TSA officers to make sure a jam-packed, cluttered, overstuffed bag is safe.

2. Checked Baggage Screening

Checked baggage items are scanned using a computer tomography (CT) scanner. A CT scanner is a hollow tube that surrounds your bag. An X-ray mechanism revolves slowly around it, bombarding it with X-rays and recording the resulting data. The scanner calculates the mass and density of individual objects in your bag based on this tomogram. If an object’s mass/density falls within the range of a dangerous material, the CT scanner warns the operator of a potential hazardous object.

International Flights

To enhance safety on international travels, TSA works closely with 280 foreign airports with direct commercial flights to the U.S., in more than 100 countries around the world. International passengers might have to go through an extensive security screening process. Hence, arrive earlier at your airport so as to allow enough time for the screening procedure. Take a look at the security advisory of the Federal Aviation Administration to know about hazardous materials.

3. Pat-Down Screening

Pat-down procedures are used to determine whether prohibited items or other threats to transportation security are concealed on the person. The process involves the manual inspection of the head, neck, arms, torso, legs, and feet. This includes head coverings and sensitive areas such as breasts, groin, and the buttocks. The officer advises you about the process to help you anticipate any actions before you feel them. Pat-downs require sufficient pressure to ensure detection, and areas may undergo a pat-down more than once for the TSA officer to confirm no threat items are detected. You will receive a pat-down by an officer of the same gender.

4. Secure Flight

Secure Flight is a risk-based passenger prescreening program that enhances security by identifying low and high-risk passengers before they arrive at the airport by matching their names against trusted traveler lists and watchlists.

5. TSA Pre✓® Screening

With TSA Pre✓®, you are able to speed through security and don’t need to remove your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. You may apply for the TSA Pre✓® membership.
