’Pack smart’: TSA gives packing warning ahead of spring travel


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Spring travel is expected to bring pre-pandemic buzz back to the airport, and with the anticipated travel comes a warning from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

"You need to think about our rule, which is if you can spill it, spray it, spread it, pump it or pour it, think about that discretion as you're packing," said Jessica Mayle, regional spokesperson for the TSA.

The TSA has seen dangerous items try and make their way through security checkpoints across the nation.

"Sometimes a comb or even like a walking cane, where you can take the top off, and there is a knife or a weapon inside," said Mayle.

The federal agency is asking travelers to think twice about their carry-on items.

"Pack smart, don’t bring those items to the checkpoint and you will have a much smoother experience," said Mayle.

Mayle went on to advise people should get to the airport two hours early in case of long lines or unexpected delays.
