Travel Notice - Elevated SecurityCurrent as of Sun., Jan. 2, 2011 6:00 p.m. Central. Information is updated as it is received.
For all flights departing from the United States
The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has determined that there is a high risk of terrorism against U.S. civil aviation, and there is a need for extra restrictions to assure the security of air travel.
Carry-on Baggage Restrictions:
On instruction from the Transportation Security Administration, Continental Airlines advises customers that the following items are permitted inside the sterile area through the screening checkpoint:
Liquids, gels and aerosols in small containers (3.4 oz. /100ml or less) in a clear re-sealable 1 quart/1 liter plastic bag. The bag with its contents must be subjected to inspection separate from carry-on bags.
Medications (including non-prescription medicine) without the requirement that the customer’s name appear on prescription medicine.
Baby formula/milk (to include breast milk), baby food, juice, medications, and liquids/gels that are needed for diabetic or other medical conditions if not contained in a closed/sealed transparent re-sealable 1 quart/1 liter plastic bag and/or if in containers larger than 3.4 oz. (100ml) each must be declared to the TSA at the security checkpoint for screening.
In U.S. domestic airports, liquids (to include beverages), gels and aerosols purchased in the sterile area of the airport may be taken on board the aircraft.
Customers may be subjected to a secondary screening if entering the screening checkpoint with liquids, gels and/or aerosols.
These measures apply to all scheduled and charter flight operations that operate to, from or within the United States and its territories and possessions. Local host country restrictions may vary by country.
they also suggest that you arrive at the airport 3 hours in advance....
