TSA allows a passenger to travel with cremains as a carry-on or in checked baggage. However, some airlines do NOT allow you to put ashes in your checked bag, so verify with your airline before you start packing. TSA officials are not allowed to open the container, and they won't let you bring it if you can't see the inside, so you want something that they can put through the X-Ray machine. TSA recommends using a wood or plastic urn for travel, even if you have a different urn you want to use when you reach your location. This helps ensure they're able to properly screen the urn.
