To access your departure gate, you must go through security screening, operated by the Transporation Security Administration. If you refuse to be screened at any point during the screening process, you will not be able to fly.
When packing for your trip, remember 3-1-1: Liquids must be in 3.4 oz or smaller bottles in 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag and only 1 bag per passenger allowed in a carry-on. Exceptions to this rule are medications, baby formula and food, and breast milk. These items must be declared for inspection at the checkpoint. (Information provided by the TSA).
