NarratorAtlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. If you can find your way here without losing your mind, chances are you can travel anywhere, anytime.

Tip twoArrive early. And dress for convenience and comfort. If you can.
Col. Todd MorrowWhen you are wearing this uniform you have to take everything out of pockets, take your top off, and take your boots off, because it's a little more than just taking of a pair of loafers.
NarratorTip three: Know the rules on liquids…the Transportation Security Administration has implementated the 3-1-1 plan to help make the restrictions more clear.
Christopher WhiteWe currently allow 3 ounce containers of liquid, gel, and aerosal in a one quart zip top bag. Each passenger is allowed one bag and must be placed seperately on the xray belt.
NarratorTo move through security checkpoints take tip 4 from a seasoned traveler.
TravelerNo, no I don't. Not anymore
NarratorNot anymore travel on bags, that is.
TravelerNow I check everything
Christopher WhiteThe 3-1-1 solution works very well for some that travel over night or on a short weekend trip. We still have to highly encourage passengers to put items in their checked baggage.
NarratorAnd don't let those long security lines stress you. They move faster than you think.
Christopher WhiteThe more time you spend preparing for screening the less time you'll spend going through the screening. Take all the metal off, take the watch off, take the key ring out of your pocket, money clip if you have one, and put it in the carry on baggage. Any shoe with a thick sole or thick heel will be subjected to additional screening. One option is to wear something with a very thin sole, or be prepared to take the shoe off….
NarratorTip five. Get plenty of rest before you travel, and limit alcohol and caffeine while you travel. Of course, some folks have the right attitude from the beginning.
NarratorDo you feel stressed when you travel on the Airplanes?
TravelerNever..I love the airport. I actually enjoy watching other people stressing, it makes me feel better about myself.
NarratorWishing you a stress free holiday, I'm Sandee LaMotte
