If you're flying out of Sacramento International Airport, arrive two hours in advance of your departure. That's the recommendation from the Sacramento County Department of Airports Tuesday.
The Transportation Security Administration has started implementing new, stronger screening procedures for carry-on items at airports nationwide, including Sacramento International Airport.
The new procedures require travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in separate bins with nothing else above or below for X-ray screening. Electronics larger than a cell phone include tablets, e-readers, and video game consoles.
The stronger security measures do not apply to passengers enrolled in TSA Precheck. There are no changes for what travelers can bring through the checkpoint. Food and liquid items that comply with the 3-1-1- liquids rule, cell phones and books are still allowed in carry-on bags.
