You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. Placing these items in the small bag and separating from your carry-on baggage facilitates the screening process. Pack items that are in containers larger than 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters in checked baggage.
Any liquid, aerosol, gel, cream or paste that sets off an alarm during screening will require additional screening.
While the rule prohibiting items such as liquids, gels or aerosols in quantities greater than 3.4 ounces is still in place, due to the pandemic TSA is allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container, up to 12 ounces per passenger, in carry-on bags. Travelers must remove the hand sanitizer from their bags before they’re scanned.
3.4 ounces (100ml) or smaller sized containers that fit in 1 quart-sized, resealable bag may go in carry-on and through checkpoint security.
Containers that are larger than 3.4 ounces (100ml) regardless of amount inside must be in checked baggage (hand sanitizer excepted–see above).
