How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Ames

These clever tips and pointers about airport security procedures will save you a lot of time on your journey to Ames:

  • Have your passport and boarding pass in an easily accessible place. They'll be the first things you'll be asked for by airport security personnel.
  • Keep in mind that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to remove it before proceeding.
  • Electronic items such as phones, laptops and cameras will need to be put through the X-ray machine separately. Make sure they're within easy reach.
  • Lip balm, toothpaste and other toiletry items in cream, liquid or gel form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
  • Loosen your shoelaces in preparation for entering the body scanner. Depending on what type of shoes you're wearing, security may ask you to remove them.
  • Pocketknives and corkscrews are prohibited from entering the plane. Stash them away in your checked luggage to avoid them being confiscated at the airport security checkpoint.
