EU security rules at airports

To protect you against the new threat of liquid explosives, the European Union (EU) has adopted security rules that restrict the amount of liquids that you can take through security checkpoints. They apply to all passengers departing from airports in the EU whatever their destination.


This means that, at security checkpoints, you and your hand luggage must be checked for liquids in addition to other prohibited articles. However, these rules do not limit the liquids that you can buy at shops located beyond the point where you show your boarding pass or on board an aircraft operated by an EU airline.

CARRYING LIQUIDS, AEROSOLS AND GELS IN HAND LUGGAGE FROM 31st OF JANUARY, 2014

 

IF ITEMS EXCEED REQUIRED LIQUID LIMITATIONS, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CARRY THEM ON BOARD!

 

You are allowed to take only small quantities of liquids in your hand luggage. These liquids must be packed in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml each. You must pack these containers in one transparent, re-sealable plastic bag (it can be bought at the security check point) of not more than 1 litre capacity per passenger and present it separately for screening at the security check point.

 

You are also allowed to take liquid medications, baby food (ex. breast milk, formula mix etc.) in reasonable amounts required while traveling. Moreover you are allowed to take duty free goods or similar purchases, which should be put in a special sealed bag together with the purchase receipt. The bag should not be opened until the final destination. Medications, baby food and duty free goods should be presented separately for screening at the security check point.
