Gulfport-Biloxi Airport - TSA - Security

Passenger safety is our top priority at GPT

It is achieved through the combined efforts of several agencies including the Gulfport Police Department’s Airport Division and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).


TSA is responsible for the screening of all passengers and luggage. Only ticketed passengers are allowed beyond the screening checkpoints, except for those with specific medical or parental needs. Each traveler will be limited to one carry-on bag and one personal bag (i.e., purse or briefcase). All electronic items, such as laptops and cell phones, may be subjected to additional screening.

It is recommended that passengers arrive 1.5 hours prior to scheduled takeoff.
