How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Kauai

These useful hints and tips about airport security checks will save you lots of time on your way to Kauai:

  • Keep your boarding pass and passport within easy reach. They'll be the first things you'll be asked to produce by security personnel.
  • Keep in mind that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be told to step back and remove it before moving forward.
  • Make sure your phone, laptop and other electronic devices are easy to reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine separately.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to place all creams, gels and liquids in a separate tub for inspection. Make sure they're all stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Untie your shoelaces in preparation for entering the body scanner. Depending on the type of shoes you're wearing, security may tell you to take them off.
  • Some destinations have strict biosecurity laws. Consider where you're headed to and whether or not you're allowed to fly with fresh fruit and other foods.
