Safety & Security

Checkpoint Information

T.F. Green Airport and the Transportation Security Administration have taken significant steps to minimize the amount of time you spend waiting to go through the passenger screening checkpoint.

Typical wait time is no more than a few minutes.

However, during peak travel hours or days, lines may be longer than normal - typically 5am-7am and 4pm-6pm. Summer months typically require travelers to budget extra time. Your checkpoint wait time may also depend on the number of carry-on bags and types of packed items.  Please plan according. Tables and benches are readily available for passenger convenience while revesting.

Remember to take all items out of your pockets and place them inside your carry-on.  Divest medicines and baby foods separately.  All other liquids, gels and aerosols under 3.4 oz. must follow the established TSA rules which can be found at www.tsa.gov.

Threat Level

All passengers are advised to be aware of the current Department of Homeland Threat Advisory Level.  Increases in this level may dictate additional security measures to be taken by the airport and your air carrier and you should allow extra time for these measures to be carried out.
