Airport safety tips
One federal agency was on hand at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport today to offer travel tips.
The TSA had a display in the terminal today with prohibited items recovered from checkpoints at the airport to show what types of items travelers can’t bring through security.
According to the agency, seven firearms have also been confiscated at the airport this year.
Real ID is another upcoming safety measure taking effect on October 1st, 2020. TSA Spokeswoman Sari Koshetz said, “We want people to have the least stress at the checkpoint, but at the same point, we want to make sure that you and everyone sitting next to you is safe on that aircraft.”
It is recommended that you arrive to the airport at least two hours before domestic flights. For more airport security information visit www.tsa.gov.
