Restrictions on liquids
The European Union has adopted a regulation restricting the
liquids that passengers can carry in their cabin baggage
past security checkpoints and then onto aircraft. This
comes as a reaction to another threat to civil aviation security
stemming from home made liquid explosives. The regulation applies
as from november 6 2006 within the EU/EES.
You may take the following items onboard in your cabin
- Liquids, aerosols and gels in containers with a capacity no
greater than 100 ml (3.4 fl oz).
- The containers shall fit comfortably in one transparent 1 litre
bag that is completely closed
