Security US Airways and the nation’s
airports are working together with the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, the TSA,
and other federal and local law enforcement
agencies to implement security measures to
keep all passengers and crewmembers safe.
Be aware of the activities around you. Any
suspicious activity should be immediately
reported to an airline representative or law
Permitted and Prohibited Items and
Security Wait Times The TSA has listed
items that may be taken through the security
checkpoint. If you are unsure about a particular
item, see a complete list of permitted and prohibited items at tsa.gov. On the TSA website
you can view security checkpoint wait times
and other useful information. You can also
check the US Airways website at usairways.com
for security-related travel tips.
Hazardous Materials Many common
items used in the home or workplace might
seem harmless. However, when transported by
air they can be dangerous and are prohibited.
During flight, variations in temperature and
pressure can cause items to leak, generate
toxic fumes, or even start a fire. Federal law
prohibits the carriage of hazardous materials
Explosives, compressed gases, flammable
liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives, and radioactive material are hazardous
and prohibited. Some examples include paints,
lighter fluids, fireworks, tear gas, oxygen
bottles, and pepper spray. If you are unsure
whether the item you want to pack in your
luggage is hazardous, please contact
US Airways at 800-428-4322.
Electronic Equipment Please do not
use portable televisions, radio transmitters, or
remote control toys inside the aircraft.
Other portable electronic devices may be
used except at taxi, takeoff, and landing, when
they must be turned off and properly stowed.
As a courtesy to our customers, we request
that all passengers use headsets for any audible
portable electronic devices. Please also be considerate of other passengers’ sensitivities and
the proximity of minors when choosing your
personal video entertainment.
In addition, cellular phones may be used
while the aircraft is parked at the gate, and after
landing while taxiing to the gate, as advised by
the flight crew. They must be turned off and
stowed at all other times. Bluetooth or wireless
devices are not permitted for use in flight.
