How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Carlsbad

Your journey to Carlsbad begins the minute you've completed all the security checks. We've compiled a list of handy tips to help you get through quickly:

  • Be sure you know the whereabouts of your boarding pass and travel ID. You don't want to hold up the queue when you're asked to hand them over.
  • Belts, coins and wrist watches must be put in a bin for X-raying. If you enter the body scanner with any one of these items, you'll be turned around and requested to remove them.
  • Electronic devices such as laptops, tablets and phones need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Make sure they're within easy reach.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids and gels, every passenger is allowed a quart-sized clear resealable bag to keep containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Consider the type of footwear you want to travel in. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to take off when you're at the security checkpoint. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
  • Multi-tools and corkscrews are prohibited from entering the aircraft. Pack them in your checked luggage to avoid losing them at the security checkpoint.
