TSA reminder about gifts on the plane

TSA reminds Albany residents about the do's and dont's of what to pack and bring on the plane.

The usual items of drugs and weapons remain on the list of prohibited items.

However, Airport Director Yvette Aehle reminds residents, Southwest Regional Airport TSA will be checking gifts as well.

Aehle says, "people need to realize that when they're pack their presents they do no need to wrap them because TSA will unwrap them and look at them just to make sure it's not something dangerous."

Ahele adds the prohibited items list is constantly changing and insists that residents check the list on the TSA website before boarding the plane.
