Traveling with Cremains

Oct 8, 2022 | Articles & Information

If you plan to travel via airplane with your loved one’s remains, you will need to first check with the particular airline to find out what their particular requirements are for traveling with cremains.  Some airlines do not allow cremains to be transported in checked baggage. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has provided information that may be useful as you plan to travel with your loved one’s cremains. Here are two TSA web links with information we think you may find useful: TSA Cremated Remains and also TSA What Can You Bring? 

You may also contact the TSA via Twitter at @AskTSA or via Facebook Messenger. They are available to answer your questions 365 days a year from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET daily. You may also reach their contact center at (866) 289-9673

In addition, here is an informative article entitled, Consider Security Rules When Flying with Cremated Remains by David Koenig.

It will help to be well informed as to the guidelines and requirements for both the TSA and the particular airline you choose prior to booking your flight.

At Access Cremation, we understand what goes into making arrangements for your loved one. Feel free to Contact Us anytime for assistance. A staff member is available to help.
