With the continued impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak, traveling today comes with a few more challenges. Take note of the following information before boarding your flight to Aruba:
- Understand the restrictions and rules in both your origin and destination. You may not be able to travel depending on local circumstances, so check before you lock in your flight.
- Wear a face mask during airport screening. A TSA employee will ask you to lower your mask temporarily for ID purposes.
- Rather than handing a TSA agent your boarding pass, place it directly on the reader yourself. After that, hold it up for inspection.
- One container of liquid hand sanitizer is now allowed in your carry-on baggage. It must not be larger than 12 oz (350 ml), and you’ll have to take it out of your bag at the X-ray machine for screening.
- Remove personal items from your pockets, such as your small change and phone, and place them in your carry-on rather than into bins. This will minimize handling during screening.
- Separate any food you’re carrying for screening. Food items often trigger the alarm. Putting them in a clear plastic bag and into a bin reduces the need for a TSA officer to handle and inspect your belongings.
