Restrictions on liquids in cabin baggage (hand baggage)

Liquid products can be transported in the cabin under certain conditions and restrictions.

The Safety regulations apply to all liquids, aerosols, gels, pastes, creams, lotions, foams, jams, soft cheeses, etc. and to any other substance of a nature which is at least partially liquid at room temperature. Cosmetic and food products fall under these regulations.

A limited quantity of liquid products is allowed in the cabin: these products must be contained in tubes or flasks of less than 100 ml for each of the transported products, and these must be placed in a transparent and re-sealable bag of 1 litre maximum (or about 20x20 cm in size – such as a freezer bag).

You can also bring into the cabin the necessary quantity of baby food for the length of the trip, as well as medicines or products for medical use (upon presentation of a medical prescription).

Finally, products bought in the airport "Duty free" shops or on board a plane are accepted in the cabin if they are placed in a sealed, transparent bag with the receipt clearly visible inside the bag.
