The holidays start at the airport

(NC)—The festive season is a great time for a get-away with the entire family to visit relatives. But going through airport security during the busiest travel days of the year can be stressful. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) says that delays and stress can be avoided by following a few easy steps. No matter how big (or small) your family, follow these guidelines to get off the ground smoothly:

• Leave gifts unwrapped in case their contents need to be inspected. Make sure any toys that look like weapons are placed in checked baggage, not your carry-on.

• Grandma's jam, mom's toiletries, dad's shaving cream and other liquids, gels and aerosols in your carry-on must be in containers of 100ml or less and need to be placed in a clear 1L plastic bag.

• Baby food, formula, milk, water and juice are exempt from this policy when travelling with your child under the age of two.

• Medications are also exempt. They must be presented separately to the screening officer.

• Use the line designated for families and passengers with special needs where you can get extra assistance. These lines are available at most major Canadian airports.

• If you or your child has special needs, let the screening officer know and don't be afraid to ask for assistance.

• Strollers and car seats will need to be x-rayed. Hold your child as you walk through the metal detector.
