Carrying liquids in your hand baggage

Restrictions on liquids you can bring into the cabin.

This page tells you about the hand baggage liquid restrictions you need to be aware of before you pack.

If you want more information about what items you can or can't bring in your hand luggage, please visit our Dangerous Items page.

For security reasons, there are limits to the amount of liquids you can bring with you in your hand baggage, on all our flights.

The term 'liquids' includes gels, lotions, pastes, liquid cosmetics, foams and foodstuffs. And of course, drinking water.

Generally, all liquids must be in bottles or containers of 100ml or smaller. All your liquids must fit inside a single resealable clear bag no bigger than 20cm x 20cm (8ins x 8ins).

Unless you need them during the flight, we recommend you pack your liquid items in your hold baggage to avoid security delays.

If you are carrying baby foods or medications, you will be able to bring more of these liquids with you, see below.

We have detailed specific restrictions below, listed by departure country. Please read these carefully and make sure you are following them, before you drop off your check in baggage with us.

There are also restrictions on liquids bought in Duty Free at the aircraft. Please check these carefully, especially if you have an onward connection, as your Duty Free items could be confiscated if you don't comply.
