Travel is more relaxed and effortless when you know what to expect and plan beforehand. From packing to security checks, organizing for special situations such as children, pets, medical kit or musical instruments, the following are the information that you will need to be informed about.

Change to Duty Free guidelines when flying into the U.S.

Effective January 31, 2014, TSA will permit duty free liquids through the security checkpoint in carry-on luggage if packaged well in a security tamper-evident bag (STEB).

How Much Can I Carry On?

You can have one small carry-on bag plus one personal stuff per passenger on condition that the carry-on bag suits securely in the sizer without being forced and does not top overall dimensions of 45 inches (length + width + height).

The full dimensions cannot go beyond any of the following measurements: 22" long x 14" wide x 9" tall or 115cm (56 x 36 x 23 cm). All carry-on things should be packed in an overhead bin.

The personal item includes laptop bag, purse, briefcases or a comparable stuff such as a tote. The personal thing must be smaller than your carry-on bag and must suit under the seat in front of you.

The following are the additional items that will be permitted above and beyond the restrictions:

A small bag of food to eat during the flight

Approved safety seat for lap or ticketed child

Outerwear such as hats, coats and wraps

Book or newspaper

Pillow or blanket

Umbrella stroller for lap or ticketed child

Diaper bag for lap or ticketed child

Duty free stuffs

Assistive devices for travelers such as wheelchairs, portable oxygen concentrators, walkers, and CPAP machines, etc.

Carry-on Tips and Techniques

At some airports, carry-on luggage may be more regulated.

Added restrictions may be set on carry-on baggage due to aircraft packing capacity.

Limits may be levied after the boarding process has started.

Carry-on roller board bags, large backpacks, duffle bags or other personal things that don't fit in the overhead bins or under the seat must be inspected at the gate and putted in the cargo compartment on American Eagle aircraft.

Horizontal rolling and/or hanging garment bags are deliberated to be the customer's carry-on baggage and must fit securely in the bag sizer, not go beyond the following dimensions: 22" long x 14" wide x 9" high or 115cm (56 x 36 x 23 cm). A bag that is 22" long by 24" high by 10.5" wide for a total of 56.5 inches would be too big therefore would not be allowed. Travelers and passengers can carry a soft-sided garment bag of fit for 51in / 130cm (length + width + height) in lieu of carry-on stuff.


When traveling by air, regulated amounts of liquids, gels and aerosols may be brought in cabin bags together with travel-size toiletries.

The TSA permits travelers and passengers to leave their laptop computers in bags that meet new "checkpoint friendly" rules and regulations. In order to know more about your carry-on baggage, you can check the TSA News Release.
