Carriage of Liquids
New rules apply from 7 January 2008 at all airports in the EU concerning the amount of liquids that can be taken through security checkpoints.
Passengers boarding planes in EU countries are allowed to carry liquids in containers no more than 100ml in capacity brought to the airport contained in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag - itself no more than a litre in capacity.
The definition of liquids includes:
- Gels, pastes, lotions, liquid/solid mixtures
- The contents of pressurised containers, eg toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfume, deodorant, shaving foam, aerosols, etc
The following liquids are also permitted through the airport security search point:
- Prescription medicines in liquid form sufficient and essential for the flight (eg diabetic kit), as long as verified as authentic
- Baby milk and liquid baby food (the contents of each bottle or jar must be tasted by the accompanying passenger)
Once through security, passengers can buy items in the departures lounge and take them on board.
To help with the security process, passengers are also encouraged not to include items which could contain liquids (eg bottles, flasks, tubes, cans, plastic containers etc) in their cabin baggage.
