For any international flights, any liquids, aerosols, and gels that passengers want to take in their carry-on baggage must comply with the following requirements:
- all liquids, aerosols, and gels must be in containers of 100ml or less. You cannot carry liquids, aerosols, or gels in containers larger than 100ml, even if they are not full (i.e. the content is 100ml or less).
- passengers must carry their 100ml containers in a re-sealable transparent plastic bag of 1 litre volume (this is a re-sealable sandwich bag like those available at your local supermarket)
- each passenger, including children, will be permitted to carry on board one, 1 litre transparent plastic bag
- the plastic bag must be re-sealable and presented separately from all other carry-on baggage at the screening point.
There are exceptions for personal medications, baby products, and dietary supplements in liquid, aerosol, or gel form. Full details of the measures, including exceptions, are contained in the Frequently Asked Questions.
Many other countries have already introduced similar measures, including Australia and New Zealand.
It is important to remember that some aspects of the new measures may vary from country to country and may change over time. It is important that you check this website just before you travel to ensure that you have the correct information.
