Guidelines for traveling with medicine

Bringing Medication

All medications in any form or type (for instance, pills, injectables, or homeopathic) and associated supplies (syringes, Sharps disposal container, pre-loaded syringes, jet injectors, pens, infusers, etc.) are allowed through the security checkpoint once they have been screened. Atropens, an auto-injection system that can help treat many emergency conditions (low heart rate, breathing problems, and excess saliva related to insecticide, nerve gas or mushroom poisoning) are also allowed.

TSA recommends, but does not require, that your medications be labeled to assist with the screening process.

Medications in daily dosage containers are allowed through the checkpoint once they have been screened.

Customers with disabilities and medical conditions bringing liquids through security

Customers with a disability or medical condition may bring all prescription and over-the-counter medications (liquids, gels, and aerosols) including KY jelly, eye drops, and saline solution for medical purposes.

Additional items a customer may bring include:

  • Liquids including water, juice, or liquid nutrition or gels for customers with a disability or medical condition;
  • Life-support and life-sustaining liquids such as bone marrow, blood products, and transplant organs;
  • Items used to augment the body for medical or cosmetic reasons such as mastectomy products, prosthetic breasts, bras or shells containing gels, saline solution, or other liquids; and,
  • Gels or frozen liquids needed to cool disability or medically related items used by persons with disabilities or medical conditions.
Customers are not limited in the amount or volume of these items they may bring in their carry-on baggage. BUT if the medically necessary items exceed 3.4 ounces or are not contained in a one-quart, zip-top plastic bag, the customer MUST declare to a TSA Security Officers at the checkpoint for further inspection.

Medication Requiring Refrigeration
Refrigerators are not available onboard our aircraft. If you have medication that needs to be refrigerated you may bring a small insulated cooler that meets the carry-on baggage requirements.
