Safety And Security at MYR

TSA Screening Checkpoint Hours:  4:45 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. daily

Everyone who travels by air is required to go through airport security checkpoints. These checkpoints are operated by Transportation Security Officers from the Transportation Security Administration. The checkpoints are necessary to make sure "prohibited items" cannot be brought into the secure area of an airport, or onboard an aircraft. Not only do all passengers go through checkpoints, their checked baggage is also screened.

Travel Tips for Your Security Experience 

  • The secret to getting through security smoothly is to de-clutter your carry-on bag. This lets the Transportation Security Officers get a clear, uncomplicated X-ray image of your carry-on.
  • When possible, pack liquids and gels in checked baggage. You will get through security faster.
  • Notify your airline or travel agent in advance if you need assistance at the airport. Your airline can help you through the airport facility and the screening process.
  • If you need someone to accompany you through the security checkpoint to reach your gate, ask your airline representative about getting a gate pass for your companion before you enter the security checkpoint.
  • The limit of one carry-on and one personal item (purse, briefcase or computer case) does not currently apply to medical supplies, equipment, mobility aids or assistive devices carried or used by a person with a disability.
  • If you have medical documentation about your medical condition or disability, you can present this information to the security officer to help inform him or her of your situation. TSA doesn't require this documentation and it will not exempt you from the security screening process.
  • Make sure to have an identification tag on all your carry-on items, equipment, mobility aids, and devices.

  • If a baby or small child is traveling with you, baby formula, breast milk, and baby food is allowed. For more details from TSA on navigating the screening process with your children, please click Traveling with Children.
