Albuquerque International Sunport Airport (KABQ) announces new carry-on procedures

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Transportation Security Administration announced new carry-on procedures at the Albuquerque International Sunport Friday.

The new procedures require travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in bins for x-ray screening when going through the security checkpoint. These electronics should not have anything on top or below them, just as laptops have been screened for years.

Objects such as chargers and electronic toothbrushes can stay in the bag.

Passengers are still asked to remove their one-quart bag containing liquids, gels and aerosols in quantities of less than 100 ml (3.4 ounces). New procedures require the bag be placed in a bin by itself for the x-ray screening.

Carry-on Bag Procedures

Organize the carry-on bag so electronics larger than a cell phone can be quickly and easily accessed when at the security checkpoint;

Ensure the quart-size bag of liquids, gels and aerosols can be accessed quickly and easily;

Don’t overstuff the carry-on bag. An uncluttered bag makes the screening process easier and quicker for the passengers and TSA officers. Consider checking bags when feasible;

Once screening is complete, be sure to put all electronics back in the carry-on bag. Double-check the bins to make sure nothing is left behind.

There are no new changes to what travelers can bring through a checkpoint.

The TSA says the new procedures are already in place at Farmington Four Corners Regional Airport, Lea County Regional Airport in Hobbs and the Santa Fe Municipal Airport.

These safety measures are going to be implemented nationwide in the coming weeks.
