How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Santa Barbara

  • Make sure your boarding pass and passport are easily accessible. You'll need to show them straightaway.
  • Wallets, USB sticks and wrist watches must be placed in a tub for X-raying. If you enter the body scanner with any one of these items, you'll be requested to turn back and remove them.
  • All laptops must be taken out of their protective carry bags and placed in a tub before being X-rayed.
  • Traveling with a new perfume? As long as it's no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's placed in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it in your carry-on luggage.
  • Untie your shoelaces as you approach the body scanner. Depending on the sort of shoes you've got on, security may ask you to remove them.
  • Multi-tools and corkscrews are prohibited from entering the aircraft. Tuck them away in your checked luggage to avoid them being confiscated at the security checkpoint.
