Taking a flight doesn't have to be complicated
(NC) During the holidays, thousands take to the skies to celebrate with friends and family. It's the time of year to give gifts to our loved ones. That being said, there are some restrictions on what can be brought on board a plane. Here are a few simple tips to get through security hassle-free.
Avoid wrapping presents: officers may have to unwrap them for control purposes. Wait until you arrive at your destination, or take advantage of some airports' gift-wrapping services located past security.
Avoid bringing presents that contain liquid, aerosols or gels in your carry-on luggage. This includes: alcohol, wine, beer, snow globes, canned soup, maple syrup, perfume and lotions. Put them in your checked baggage or send them separately. Remember that all liquids in your carry-on baggage must be 100 mL or less.
