Tips to Make Thanksgiving Air Travel Easier

WILMINGTON -- Wilmington International Airport is seeing a growing number of travelers, and officials have some tips to make your trip a little smoother.

Many people will head to the airport for the first time since the Transportation Security Administration tightened regulations for carrying liquids on board. Just last week it was announced passsengers could carry an additional 0.4 ounces, upping the limit to 3.4.

Officials say remembering the number 3-1-1 will get you on your way more quickly.

"They can bring liquids as long as they don't exceed 3.4 ounces, and they can have as many of these containers that fit into a one liter bag, a one liter ziplock bag," says Assistant Federal Security Director Richard Pait.
