How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Sacramento

Make your flight to Sacramento that little bit easier by reading over these helpful tips and pointers:

  • Be sure you know the location of your boarding pass and travel ID. You don't want to hold up the line when you're asked to produce them.
  • You'll have to put your music on pause for a few minutes. Earphones and headphones need to be taken off and put in a tray to be X-rayed. The same applies to items such as heavy jackets and belts.
  • All laptops must be taken out of their protective carry bags and placed in a tub prior to being X-rayed.
  • Traveling with a favorite cologne? As long as it's no greater than 3.4 ounces (161 kilometerslliliters) and it's stored in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it in your hand luggage.
  • The airport security may ask you to remove your shoes in preparation for entering the body scanner. Choose a pair that come off easily. There's nothing more tiresome than having to do your laces up over and over again.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever updating. Browse your carrier's website to learn about what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
