Prohibited Items


Planning ahead and packing properly will make your experience at the airport much quicker and easier. Review the lists below to know what you can pack in carry-on and checked baggage before arriving at the airport. Please note, even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns.


For everyone's safety on board, some common items are restricted by the TSA and FAA. Be sure to know what you can carry on and what you can check before you go to the airport. Please view our complete list of Prohibited and Restricted items.


Prohibited and Restricted Items


Contour does not transport hazardous materials or cargo.


Explanation of Liquids


A quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes are allowed through the checkpoint; however, these are limited to 3.4 ounces (100 ml) or less per item. This is also known as the 3-1-1 liquids rule. Containers that are larger than 3.4 ounces (100ml) regardless of amount inside must be in checked baggage. Any liquid, aerosol, gel, cream or paste that triggers an alarm during screening will require additional screening.


Certain items may be exempt from this rule.


TSA Exemption List


TSA Pre®


TSA is significantly reducing PreCheck access for non-enrolled travelers. To continue using expedited screening, we recommend enrolling in a DHS Trusted Traveler program.

TSA PreCheck lets eligible, low-risk travelers enjoy expedited security screening. The program is available at participating U.S. airport locations and for most international itineraries.

Ease through checkpoints without removing:

  •       Shoes
  •       Liquids and gels from your carry-on
  •       Laptop from your bag
  •       Light outerwear/jacket
  •       Belts
