Airport Security to Tighten Belt Another Notch

Organization Saves Time
The new year is bringing more changes in airport security. The New York Times reports that organization and planning in advance is key to moving through check points quickly. Here are a few tips from the Transportation Security Administration website in order to help you plan for your next business trip.

- Only use travel sized bottles of shampoo and other toiletries such as toothpaste and shaving cream.

- Put all bottles and make up into a clear Ziploc bag or pack them neatly in a clear organizer where everything can be seen and identified quickly.

- When in doubt leave it out! Certain small sharp objects like screwdrivers are aloud as long as they are 7in in length or shorter. Cigarette lighters however are generally prohibited.

- Pack everything neatly. Make sure all cords like cell charger, mouse and any computer cords are wound up and tied neatly.

Finally, the less you can get by without taking with you, the faster your trip through security check points are going to be. For example consider buying toiletries at your destination, or consider technology rental to have a loaded laptop with the software you need waiting for you at your hotel.
