With the holidays fast approaching, individuals are busy making their holiday travel plans and airports are anticipating a busy couple of weeks.
The Transportation Safety Administration was at the Central Wisconsin Airport Wednesday to help travelers to remember what they have to realize when traveling this holiday season. They talked about the more common regulations – no liquids over 3.4 ounces, be set up to remove their shoes except if they have done TSA Pre-Check and land in any event an hour and a half before their scheduled flight. In any case, they likewise gave a tip that is particularly significant around the holidays – don’t wrap their gifts.
“If you bring the gifts through the checkpoint, that in particular takes more time because if it’s an item that alarms, the announcer then has to unwrap the gift right? And that’s a frustrating moment because you spent all the time and material to wrap it,” says Federal Security Director Mark Lendvay.
He likewise says a common mistake during the holidays is travelers packing snow globes in their carry-on. Lendvay says they should conform to the 3-ounce rule also. Else it should be in their processed luggage.
Every year the airport sees an ever-increasing number of travelers, getting individuals less acquainted with the procedure. Lendvay says, “If we’re making the investment in informing a traveling public member before they arrive at the curb at the airport, they at least have that insight that will help behind me at the checkpoint or in our check baggage operations.
