The Port Authority and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are dedicated to making your travel experience safe and secure. We ask you to take a moment to become familiar with some important security measures. By reviewing them now, you will save time at the airport.

The key to getting through the airport faster is being prepared. Take these steps in order to minimize time at security checkpoints:

Pack luggage in layers (this increases visibility when baggage is scanned)
Ready your boarding pass and ID
Take off outer garments and shoes
Place any loose metal objects in your carry-on
Remove your laptop from your bag and place it in the bin
Passengers should consider placing additional items in checked baggage since this will ensure a more efficient screening process at TSA screening checkpoints (passengers are reminded that the air carriers request they bring only one carry-on bag and one personal item per person).
Passengers are encouraged to have prescription cards for all medications including syringes. Medications should be in original packaging.
Passengers can also expect additional security procedures to be in place including possible body pat downs.
Passengers should give themselves extra time to check in and proceed through the security checkpoint before their flight, especially during the busy holiday travel season.

Liquids: Keep in mind that liquids are allowed in carry-on luggage only in accordance with the TSA's 3-1-1 format. Please review this policy.

Prohibited Items: Click here for a list of prohibited items.

Batteries: Click here for more information if you're traveling with battery-powered equipment.

Food/Gifts: Click here for more information. There are some exceptions to these policies for customers with disabilities and medical conditions.

Visa/Passport Information: Visit the Department of Homeland Security Web sitehere for more information.

Passengers with questions may contact the Transportation Security Administration Coordination Center at (866) 289-9673. Click here to visit the TSA Web site.
Transporting Firearms

State gun laws vary considerably. Before possessing and carrying firearms into New York or New Jersey, please be aware of local state gun control laws. Please check with New York State Police or New Jersey State Police prior to possessing and carrying a weapon into New York or New Jersey.
Traveling with Pets

When traveling with pets, pets should remain in their carriers at all times except for service animals. The Port Authority of NY and NJ and our airport partners have provided pet relief areas for customers. These areas are located in the arrivals area of each terminal. Follow the signs in the baggage claim areas or ask a Customer Care Representative for information.

Owners can take their animals to these pet relief areas and allow the pets to relieve themselves. Owners are expected to clean up after their animals with the materials provided in the pet relief areas. Pet owners whose animals have an accident elsewhere in the terminal are expected to clean up after their animals and notify a member of the cleaning crew.

There are no pet relief areas beyond security checkpoints in any of the terminals at the Port Authority airports.

As policies relating to the transportation of pets vary by airline and time of year, we suggest you contact your airlines directly for details.
