What is the EU policy on liquids on-board the aircraft?

Follow

Strict rules for the contents of hand baggage will apply for all airline passengers throughout the European Union (EU), including Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. Passengers are allowed to carry small quantities - a maximum of 100 ml per container of liquids, gels and aerosols in their hand baggage.

The new rules apply to liquids such as water and other soft drinks, but also extend to gels, pastes, lotions, and the contents of aerosols. This also includes toiletries such as toothpaste, shaving cream, hair gel, lip gloss, and facial creams. The packaging of these products must meet specific requirements.

This applies for all passengers departing from or catching connecting flights at airports within the European Union including Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. Passengers are allowed to carry these liquids and gels (max 100ml per container) in a clear plastic bag. Each passenger is allowed to carry one clear plastic bag. The total volume of the plastic bag should not exceed 1 litre and the transparent plastic bag needs to be re-sealable.
