Restrictions on the carriage of liquids* protect passengers from the dangers of liquid, explosive substances. These restrictions apply to all passengers departing from EU airports, regardless of their destination.

You may carry in your cabin baggage:

  • liquids in containers of up to 100 millilitres, packaged in a transparent, resealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre - one bag to each passenger;
  • liquids purchased in airports or onboard an aircraft and packed in a sealed security bag;
  • liquids for in-flight use for medical purposes or specific dietary needs, including baby food. Medical and dietary liquids, including baby food, do not have to be packed in a litre bag.

The category of liquid substances includes:

  • water and other beverages, soups, and syrups;
  • creams, lotions, and oils;
  • perfumes;
  • sprays;
  • gels, including hair and shower gel;
  • the contents of pressurised containers, including shaving foam, other foams and deodorants;
  • pastes, including toothpaste;
  • liquid-solid mixtures;
  • mascara;
  • other liquid substances.

All liquids brought into the security checkpoints must be removed from cabin baggage and presented individually. The containers of liquids may be checked with security equipment (in line with the requirements of EU laws and regulations).

* The restrictions on the carriage of liquids are laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 of 5 November 2015. Find it HERE.
