Argyle Gardens, April 26, 2017. The Argyle International Airport (AIA) Inc. hereby reminds the General Public, that in order to protect all passengers, as an international airport, the AIA Aviation Security is required by law to screen all checked luggage.

travelling includes alcoholic beverages exceeding 70% by volume (140% proof).
