HONOLULU (KHON2) — Some travelers may have seen an announcement indicating that full-sized bottles of sunscreen were allowed in carry-on bags. The TSA says this is not true.
In a statement sent to KHON2, the TSA indicated that the government website incorrectly reflected the size of which sunscreen bottles can be brought on board.
Our website incorrectly reported that sunscreen containers larger than 3.4 oz. were allowed in carry-on bags, if medically necessary. That error has been corrected. Travelers still need to ensure liquids, gels and aerosols in carry-on bags meet the 3-1-1 requirements and are no larger than 3.4 ounces.TSA spokesperson
TSA is advising passengers who need larger quantities of sunscreen, or other liquids, gels and aerosols, to add them to their checked baggage for use at their destination.
Meanwhile, the agency is allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container up to 12 ounces per passenger in carry-on bags.
