Passengers traveling with medication and/or medical issues should be aware of the following guidelines.
Please keep all necessary medication in your carry-on baggage. Please do not pack medication in luggage you intend to check-in with your airline. All medication, related supplies and supplements in their original packaging are allowed through security checkpoints once they have been screened. These include:
- Medical prescriptions (prescription medication or dispenser should be properly marked with a professionally printed label or pharmaceutical label identifying the medication or the manufacturer's name. If for some reason you don't have a professionally printed label, you will need to obtain a doctor's note)
- Over-the-counter medications
- Herbal Supplements
- Insulin and insulin-loaded dispensing products (vials or box of individual vials, jet injectors, pens, infusers, and preloaded syringes) properly marked with a professionally printed label or pharmaceutical label identifying the medication or the manufacturer's name;
- Unlimited number of unused syringes when accompanied by insulin
- Lancets, blood glucose meters, blood glucose meter test strips, insulin pumps, and insulin pump supplies. Insulin pumps and supplies must be accompanied by insulin with professionally printed labeling or pharmacy labeling identifying the medication or manufacturer's name. It is recommended that used syringes be transported in your checked baggage. However, when used syringes need to be in your carry-on baggage, please ensure they are in a hard, plastic-capped container for safety and containment.
If you have medical documentation regarding your medical condition, you may present such information to the security checkpoint screener to help inform them of your situation. This documentation is not required and will not exempt you from the screening process.
Please notify the screener if you have any implanted medical devices, such as an artificial hip or knee, bone shafts, cranial plates, shrapnel, staples, pins, or metal parts that may set off the metal detector alarm.
