How to pack your luggage for your flight

Security control rules for cosmetics, foods and alcohol

Liquids may only be taken into the cabin in containers of less than 100 millilitres each. All liquids must fit into a single transparent, resealable plastic bag with a maximum volume of one litre.

Any larger containers of liquid must be placed in your checked hold baggage.

In addition to drinks and other fluids, nearly all cosmetics and a variety of foods are liquids. Liquids include moisturiserstoothpastesmascarasaerosolsgels, canned fruit, fish and meat, frozen foods, butters, cream cheeses, yoghurts, etc.

A good rule of thumb is that if you can spread it, it’s liquid.

Liquid baby foodformula milk and special dietary products are an exception to the above. You may carry the amount you will need during the flight in your hand baggage. A baby is considered to be a child under 2 years of age who travels with a so-called infant ticket and does not have its own seating.

Medications with a prescription may be taken into the cabin in their original packaging which has the passenger’s name on it. On international flights, be sure to check the rules applicable in the country of destination.

Note! Hairspray containers of more than 500 ml are prohibited on the aircraft and may not be carried as hand baggage or checked hold baggage.

Pack any alcoholic beverages into your hold baggage, except those purchased at airports or on aircrafts. Please note that alcohol in excess of 70% is not allowed on aircraft. Remember to check the customs regulations of each country before your flight.

Duty free liquids purchased at airports and on aircrafts may be taken into the cabin of the aircraft. Transfer passengers may carry duty free products through the security control
