implementing the highest security standards set by TSA for Private Charter flights

As of August 2006, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has changed security screening procedures for airports, banning carry-on liquids and gels aboard all Commercial Airline flights. With a few exceptions, passengers are only allowed to carry on travel-sized toiletries of three ounces or less, if they are contained in one quart-sized clear plastic zip-top bag past the screening checkpoint or on-board a Commercial Airline.

PJS endeavors to arrange for flights to operate from one private terminal/FBO to another where TSA screening requirements and procedures are designed for privately chartered flights, depending on the departing/arriving private aviation facility.

PJS strives to make each flight as convenient as possible for our clients while implementing the highest security standards set by TSA for Private Charter flights.

Below is a list of personal carry-on items TSA is currently monitoring on scheduled Commercial Airline flights vs. a Single Entity Private Charter leaving flying from a FBO to FBO.
