The Tulsa International Airport is offering travel tips to families since Spring Break vacations are around the corner.
Here are the tips:
Before leaving the airport:
- Liquids and gels in containers larger than 3.4 ounces should be packed in checked luggage.
- Liquids and gels in containers 3.4 ounces and smaller may be packed in carry-on bags, as long as the following conditions are met:
- The containers are 3.4 ounces or less.
- All containers must fit into one quart sized or smaller Ziploc bag.
- Passengers are limited to one bag.
- FAA rules prohibit the placement of electronic cigarettes in checked luggage. Passengers must carry e-cigarettes in their carry-on bag. Any liquids must fit in the quart-sized Ziploc with other liquids and gels that the passenger is taking through the checkpoint.
- Travelers may carry on board one bag that fits in the overhead bin or under the seat, plus one personal item. Check with your airline for any applicable carry on fees. Personal items include things such as purses, briefcases or laptops. A list of permitted and prohibited carry-on items is available at .

Passengers should make copies of these documents and carry an extra set with them or electronically scan the documents and e-mail a copy to them to have available should their original identification be lost or stolen.
