Diaper and medically necessary bags do not need to be clear or meet size restrictions, but they will be screened prior to entry.

Bags deemed to be medically necessary must be specifically necessary/required for medical equipment and accommodations that cannot fit within the small bag or clear bag sizing, such as an insulated bag with ice pack to keep medication chilled, oxygen tank carrier/bag, large bag to carry a lactation pump, etc.

Medically related items that can safely be stored and transported in a small clear bag will not qualify for a larger medical bag exception and should be brought in a bag that meets the small bag or clear bag requirements. Examples of medical items that will not qualify for an exemption include, but are not limited to, medication that does not need to be refrigerated, pill bottles, epi-pens, inhalers, etc.

Prohibited Bags

Prohibited bags include purses, cases (i.e.: for cameras or binoculars), backpacks, fanny packs, printed pattern plastic bags, reusable grocery totes, tinted plastic bags, mesh or straw bags, duffle bags, and large totes.
