The Transportation Security Administration is reminding passengers what they can and cannot take on airplanes.
T.S.A. officials say 40 to 50 pounds of prohibited items, not including liquids, gels or aerosols go through screening every month at Augusta Regional Airport.
When people bring those things through checkpoints, it can have a negative impact on wait times for other passengers, a T.S.A. spokesperson said.
“Many times, when we find these knives, we’re giving them the option of putting it in their car or put it in a checked bag, said Mark Howell, “So that holds things up, and then we are going to re-screen them before they go through the checkpoint.”
