How to Fly with Gifts During Holidays

If you want to fly right through your flight check-ins this Christmas, the TSA says don't get too "wrapped up" when you bring gifts.

The agency has some words for the wise when it comes to flying around Christmas time. If you want to save yourself, and agents time and headaches, don’t bring them wrapped. The TSA says put those gifts in bags or gift boxes to allow for easier checkout if they set off alarms. Travel volumes will be near pre-pandemic levels this year and they also recommend travelers enroll in pre-check to cut down on time spent waiting in line.
