    Traveler Tips
    for Getting Through the
    Passenger Security Checkpoint
    at El Paso International Airport


    El Paso International Airport would like
    to advise all travelers that Airlines
    recommend all passengers arrive
    at least 1 hours before their departure
    time in order to assist the Transportation Security Administration with processing.




    Travel tips provided by the Transportation Security Administration:

    Before you go...
    Visit www.tsa.gov for all the latest security policies.
    • Pack liquids/gels/aerosols in your checked baggage. For a short trip you are permitted to carry-on 1 quartsize, clear plastic, zip-top bag holding 3 ounces or less containers of liquids, gels or aerosols. Limited to one bag per traveler.
    • Exceptions include: baby formula/breast milk/baby food while traveling with a small child, medications, liquids (to include water, juice or liquid nutrients) or gels for diabetics or other medical needs. All exceptions must be declared to the Security Officer for screening.
    • All footwear must be removed for X-ray screening. Wearing footwear that can be easily removed helps. Pack valuables such as jewelry, cash and electronics, as well as fragile items, in your carry-on. This will speed up the screening process.
    • Avoid wearing accessories that contain metal, which will set off the metal detector.
     
    • Put all undeveloped film in your carry-on bag, because checked baggage screening equipment may damage film.
    • If carrying a firearm, please check with your airline for appropriate procedures.
    When you arrive...
    • Take your quart-size plastic zip-top bag out of your carry-on and place separately in bin.
    • Declare all permitted liquid exceptions to the Security Officer in front of the checkpoint.
    • Take your laptop and video cameras with cassettes out of their cases for screening.
    • Remove your outer coat, suit coat, jacket or blazer to place in bin for X-ray.
    • Place the following items in your carryon before entering the screening checkpoint: cell phones and personal data assistants, keys, loose change, jewelry and large metal items.
