Four Species OK For Air Travel, Says TSA
Photo Galleria: 

Plants used for Sukkot can be carried on an airplane, the Transportation Security Administration said.

The TSA, which is a part of the U.S. Homeland Security Department, said it will allow palm branches, myrtle twigs, willow twigs and citrons in airports, through security checkpoints and on airplanes. The items and the people carrying them must go through security screenings; the items are not on any prohibited list.

The announcement comes during what the TSA refers to as significant travel days, running from sundown Sept. 30 until Oct. 10, which coincide with the Sukkot holiday.
