7 Tips to Get Through Security Easier
- Pack Smart!
Pack your carry-on with security efficiency in mind. Buy travel size toothpaste and cosmetics so that you do not exceed the 3-ounce maximum travelers' liquid allowance. Put these in an easy to open plastic bag and pack it so you can easily reach and remove it for security checks.
- Documents Ready?
Place your travel documents, ID and boarding pass in a safe, easy to reach compartment of your personal carry-on.
- Appropriate Shoes
Keep the line going while minimizing your own security check time with the right pair of shoes. Opt for quick on and off slip-ons instead of laced footwear.
- Accessories off
Don’t waste time taking off your belt, jewelry or jacket prior to security screening. Remove these before you reach the conveyor belt; then place them in an easy to reach portion of your carry-on luggage.
- Carry Your Laptop Securely
Using a TSA-sanctioned laptop case that does not include a zipper or a clasp will help you get through the scanning process without the fluster of removing your computer at all!
- Choose Your Security Line Wisely
Glance carefully at the different waiting lines before joining one. Business people in general involve less time. Families with kids, babies and a slew of related paraphernalia will usually take longer to get through.
- Remain at Peace with the Security Process
Although you may not be happy with the methods chosen to screen potential danger, make peace with it and follow instructions. Arguing or making a fuss about airport protocol will only serve to work against your aim to move along rapidly.
