I would like to bring a gas mask with me in my carry-on.

Customer Question

Hello, I would like to bring a gas mask with me in my carry-on. I fly frequently at least 4-6 x a month. I am a doctor & I do locum tenen work. With all the concern for terrorist attacks, I want to protect myself. Will TSA allow me to bring a gas mask with me on my carry on , on a domestic flight?
Thank you

Hello, Dr. Geller and thanks for your question. On the TSA's Prohibited items list, a gas mask is not listed, nor does it come up when placed in the 'Can I bring....' field, advising what is and is not acceptable in carry-on luggage. https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/prohibited-items This would lead me to believe that it is allowed in carry-on luggage, but must pass through x-ray, as all other items.If you need more information, please call or email the TSA Contact Center at:(###) ###-####eekdays:8 a.m. to 11 p.m. ETWeekends/Holidays:9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ETEmail Contact Center----------------------------------Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance.
