TSA & Airport Security

Take the pressure out of your travel experience by preparing for airport security in advance
Security checkpoints are open from 4:45 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. daily. TSA recommends passengers arrive 2 hours prior to scheduled departure for domestic flights and 3 hours prior to scheduled departure for international flights. 

Screening at MYR

TSA security measures are in place to help ensure the safety of all passengers throughout the travel process. At MYR, a variety of security measures are in place. For additional information on TSA's screening procedures, visit TSA.gov.

Travel Programs

Expedite your security screening experience through a variety of Trusted Traveler Programs.
Enroll in TSA Pre-Check for a better, faster, easier travel experience. Qualifying passengers who are considered low-risk can receive expedited screening either as a member of the program or as a member of another trusted-traveler group. In the TSA Pre-Check program, most passengers wait 5 minutes or less at security.
Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Though intended for frequent international travelers, there is no minimum number of trips necessary to qualify for the program.

Travel Tips for a Smooth Security Experience

There are many items that are prohibited, some in carry-on and others in both carry-on and checked baggage. For details about the new security procedures and time saving tips visit the TSA Website.



3.4-ounce (100-milliliter) bottle or less (by volume) - one (1) quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag - one (1) bag per passenger placed in screening bin; one (1) quart-sized bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. The 3.4-ounce (100-milliliter) container size is a security measure.



Place bottles in one bag and X-ray separately to speed screening. Be prepared. Each time TSA searches a carry-on it slows down the line. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a faster and easier checkpoint experience. If in doubt, put your liquids in checked luggage.



Medications, baby formula and food, breast milk, and juice are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint.
