Fireworks Discovered by TSA Officers
I know my annual fireworks reminders sound a bit silly, but travelers really do continue to pack them. I guess it’s not too surprising when you think about it. Over 900 firearms (most of them loaded) have been discovered in carry-on bags so far this year. In fact, 18 firearms were discovered in just one day earlier this month.
So, just for the record:
Fireworks are prohibited in both carry-on and checked bags. This includes all varieties including but not limited to:
- Aerial repeater fireworks
- Aerial shell fireworks
- Bottle rockets
- Flying spinners
- Ground spinners
- Parachute fireworks
- Roman candles
- Smoke fireworks
Have a great holiday weekend and stay safe.
