Security (TSA)

What Can I Bring Through Security?

Can you bring your tennis racquets or golf clubs on board the airplane? How about scissors or nail files through the security checkpoint? Will your pacemaker set off security alerts?

Find out the answer to these questions and many others with the helpful tips and security information provided by the Transportation Security Administration(TSA).

Download a TSA App that lets you type in items to see what you can and can't bring through the security checkpoint.


When I change flights, or recheck my luggage, do I have to go through security again? 

If you are changing terminals or concourses, or arriving on an international flight, you will have to go through security again except in Terminal 3 Concourses E and F. At this time, only Terminal 3 Concourses E and F are connected and you only need to go through security once. All the other concourses are NOT connected.
