Service Description

For departures within the European Union as well as in other European countries (Switzerland, Iceland, Norway), the following regulations apply to the carrying of liquids in hand baggage:

  • Liquids, gels and aerosols (such as cosmetics and toiletries, gels, pastes, creams, lotions, mixtures of liquid and solid substances, perfumes, containers under pressure, cans, water bottles, etc.) that are not medicines or special foods may only be carried in hand baggage in containers of up to 100 ml.
  • These containers must be packed in a transparent, resealable bag with a capacity of up to 1 litre - fully closable.
  • You must purchase the bags of up to 1 litre capacity yourself before departure. They are available in many supermarkets, for example as freezer bags.
  • The visible plastic bag must be presented separately from the rest of your hand luggage at the checkpoint.
  • Medication and special foods such as baby food may still be carried in your hand luggage. You must prove that you will need these medicines and special foods during the flight.
  • Liquids from duty-free purchases from any airport and aircraft may be carried in your hand baggage. This is provided that the liquid is in an undamaged, sealed security bag.

Products and bags that do not meet the requirements may not be carried in your hand baggage.


Process flow

They remove all liquids from their baggage without being asked and present them for the aviation security check. The security personnel check liquids, liquid medicines and liquid special foods with a special control technique. If the non-hazardousness of a liquid cannot be established beyond doubt, you may not take this liquid in your hand luggage.
