Limitation liquids in hand baggage

As of 6 November 2006 all passengers within the European Union (EU) are subject to new security rules for hand baggage. Liquids are only permitted in small quantities and can only be taken on board provided they are correctly packaged.

The new rules apply to all liquids, gels, pastes, lotions and the content of spray cans. Toiletries such as toothpaste, hair gel, perfume, shaving foam and creams also come under these rules.

Liquids must be packaged as follows:

  • liquids must be packaged in containers of no more than 100ml;
  • these packagings shall be carried in a transparent plastic bag;
  • only one transparent plastic bag can be taken per person;
  • the content of the transparent plastic bag must be no more than 1 litre;

Flying safely begins at home!

Airline companies take numerous security measures. However, your security and that of your fellow passengers is, to a large extent, in your own hands.  This begins while packing your luggage.

For instance, it is forbidden to bring aboard substances belonging to the following categories:

• explosives *
• compressed gases
• flammable materials
• oxygen-rich substances, such as peroxides and bleaching powder
• poisonous substances
• radioactive substances
• caustics
• magnetic, noxious, pungent and malodorous substances

* Ammunition for sports purposes can only be brought with the permission of the airline company.

Some examples of dangerous substances are depicted below. Your travel agent and airline company will provide further information.
