3-1-1 Rule for Carry-Ons

All liquids, gels, and aerosols must be in 3.4 ounces (100ml) or smaller containers. Larger containers that are half-full or toothpaste tubes rolled up are not allowed. Each container must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or smaller.
All liquids, gels, and aerosols must be placed in a single, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag. Gallon size bags or bags that are not zip-top such as fold-over sandwich bags are not allowed. Each traveler can use only one, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag.
Each traveler must remove their quart-sized plastic, zip-top bag from their carry-on and place it in a bin or on the conveyor belt for X-ray screening. X-raying separately will allow TSA security officers to more easily examine the declared items.
Declare larger liquids. 
Medications, baby formula and food, and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint.


The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport’s top priority is ensuring the safety and security of passengers and visitors. We ask that you assist our law enforcement officers by obeying the law. As a convenience to our customers, the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport allows passengers to be dropped off and picked up in front of the terminal building; however, NO VEHICLE may be left unattended at any time. Unattended vehicles will be impounded immediately and towed away.

If your plans require you to wait for a long period of time, we ask that you park in the appropriate parking garage. This will relieve congestion along the front of the terminal for others to drop-off and pick-up passengers.

We are here to serve you.

If you have questions or need assistance, we encourage you to ask one of our Airport Police Officers.

We recommend that passengers arrive at the airport at least 60 minutes prior to the scheduled flight departure time.
