Travel Tips

To make your flight at Bob Hope Airport as enjoyable as possible, you should make yourself aware of TSA requirements regarding carry-on items, prohibited items and more.

Following are a few Travel Tips that will help make your trip a pleasant one:

Get to the airport early. Allow EXTRA TIME to find parking or to find pick-up and drop-off space at the curb (HINT: drive in lane #2 and go past Terminal A baggage claim for better curb access)
Be prepared. Arrive ready to travel, luggage well packed and photo ID and airline documents easily available. Double check the contents of your pockets, bags and carry-on luggage to ensure no prohibited items were inadvertently packed. You are required to remove footwear for X-ray screening; place shoes in plastic bins with the rest of your carry-on items.
Use checked luggage as a fast option for liquids, gels and aerosols.
Liquids, gels and aerosols as carry-ons must be in: 3 ounce or smaller containers placed in a 1 quart, clear, plastic, zip-top bag. Only one bag per passenger may be taken through the screening checkpoint. Larger quantities must be placed in checked luggage.
Do not wrap gifts. Security officers may have to search contents of packages.
Do not pack fragile or valuable items in checked baggage. Ship or take them with you in carry-on baggage (no liquids).
Do not over-pack bags. Closing overstuffed bags can be difficult and may result in that checked bag being delayed.
