When flying on a broom just won’t do

Halloween makeup anyone?

Whether you’re dressing up as as your favorite wizard or an evil witch this Halloween don’t forget the magic numbers for your lotions and potions! TSA’s 3-1-1 rule means if it’s a liquid, gel, cream, paste, or lotion, (including fake blood!) each item can only be 3.4 ounces or less, needs to fit in a plastic quart sized bag and you are allowed only one bag per passenger.

Costumes, both scary and sweet

We know you’re dying to strut through security with your bangin’ costume. And while we’d definitely love to see them, please check with your airline carrier for their dress code policies for your scarier-than-normal traveling attire!

Props are very cool

While we know that fake knives, hatchets, and scythes can definitely make the costume, please make sure to place these items in your checked in baggage. And NEVER pack any explosive replicas (including replica grenades, bombs, and rocket launchers) since these are all prohibited items. Check our “What Can I Bring” page for more information.

There is no candy crisis here! Bring as much candy as you would like for those sugar-hungry trick-or-treaters! Just make sure they follow the 3-1-1 rule!

We all wear masks

Super hero, creepy clown, scarecrow… masks are fine when placed in your carry-on bag. But please be sure make sure to remove your mask before getting to the security checkpoint. We still need to make sure you are who you say you are.

Pumpkin Craze Galore #PSL #Too much pumpkin

Believe it or not, pumpkins, aka, the orange gourd that has taken over our morning coffee flavors, and morning muffins, are A-Okay to bring through security, so whether they are decorated or not feel free to bring those fellas along in your carry-on.

Pumpkin mania - of course there’s more!

Attention all you inspiring bakers and eaters of pumpkin products out there - if you’re toting pumpkin puree to make your famous yummy pumpkin bread, or perhaps some pumpkin butter to spread on toast, please remember that any foods in carry-on bags that are a liquid, creamy, or spreadable have to be in containers of 3.4 ounces or less and placed in your resealable liquids bag. Otherwise, make sure to check those items instead!
