Liquids in personal item

New Arrival

I’m using a small backpack as my personal item on board. I’m wondering if I can pack my liquids bag inside my personal item backpack instead of my carry on bag.

Yes! 

 

Each passenger is permitted to bring one quart-sized bag of liquids aersols, gels, creams and pastes in your carryon bag and through the TSA security checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. During screening, you'll be required to place these items in the small bag separate from your carryon baggage unless you have been selected for TSA PreCheck expedited screening, in which case you may be exempt from removing your liquids during the screening process.
