What You Can Bring On A Plane

You will need to contact the airline you are travelling with in order to find out if they have placed any restrictions on the type of carry-on luggage you wish to take with you.

However, the following restrictions under the Aviation Transport Security Act 2004 apply to liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) in carry-on baggage taken through screening points at airports:

  • A total quantity of less than 1 litre of liquids, aerosols and gels can be carried on board international inbound and outbound flights (exceptions apply for medicines/medical products and for baby products);
  • The maximum container size is 100mls. All 100ml containers presented for inspection must fit comfortably within a 1 litre transparent re-sealable plastic bag, for example, 20cm X 20cm or 15cm X 25 cm. There is a limit of one bag per passenger.

There are also other items that you must not take on board an aircraft because they present a security risk.

Further information on LAGs and prohibited items can be obtained from the What you cannot take onboard page.
