TSA Requirements for SJU Travel: Seaborne flights to/from San Juan International from St. Croix and St. Thomas and those from San Juan International to Vieques are screened by the Transportation Security Administration.   As such, please ensure you pack your carryon items in accordance with TSA 311 rules:  3-1-1 for carry-on articles = 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume) ; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure. Be prepared. Each time TSA searches a carry-on it slows down the line. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a faster and easier checkpoint experience. 3-1-1 is for short trips. If in doubt, put your liquids in checked luggage. Declare larger liquids. Medications, baby formula and food, and breast milk are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint.   For further information on TSA requirements please visit: http://www.tsa.gov/311 or   Click here to download a PDF of the 311 TSA requirements.
