This is a common question many people are wondering during the pandemic, since most want to have the ability to disinfect surfaces around them, as well as their hands, when traveling.
Usually you can only bring liquids in 3.4 ounce containers through security, but there are some exceptions due to the COVID-19 virus.
Can I Bring Hand Sanitizer on a Plane?
The answer is yes. You can always bring hand sanitizer on a plan but usually in no larger than 3.4-ounce bottles, which are contained in a quart-size bag.
Right now, however, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is making an exception due to the pandemic.
Currently, you can bring 12 ounces of hand sanitizer per person on board a plane in your carry on baggage. However, because this is outside of the standard 3.4-ounce liquid requirement, this will be screened separately, which could take some time, so plan accordingly.
All other liquids still need to be in 3.4-ounce containers and must fit in a quart size bag. Please refer to the TSA site for further information.
