Top 5 Travel Tips from TSA at ABE

TIP #1: Arrive early so you don’t have to rush.

Our Checkpoint at ABE opens at 3:45AM every day.

TIP #2: The more prepared you are, the faster the line will go.

Have your ID and boarding pass out and ready to scan when you get to the front of the line.

TIP #3: 3.4 oz. is the rule.

In your carry-on bag any liquid, gel, aerosol, cream or paste must be under 3.4 ounces. Medications and Infant/child nourishments can be exceptions.

TIP #4: The REAL ID deadline is May 3, 2023.

You will need a REAL ID compliant driver’s license (or passport) to get through the security checkpoint after that date. (Visit for more information.)

TIP #5: Check the bin!

Please remember to check your bin for all your belongings after you go through screening.
