Traveling with cremated remains

Most airlines allow cremated remains on board as carry-on or checked baggage, but the container holding the remains must pass through the x-ray machine or it will not be allowed through security. Cremated remains can also be air-shipped as cargo but only by known shippers (a “known shipper” is designated as such after passing inspection and quali cation rules set by the US Transport Security Agency [TSA]). In addition, to transport remains on an airplane, you must provide a death or cremation certificate for the cremated remains in order to carry them on board.
