Transporting liquids

The new security rules only relate to hand luggage.

Liquids - water, drinks, perfumes, gels, shampoos, toothpaste, mascara, creams, lotions, oil, sprays, shaving foams, deodorants, etc. must be placed in your hold luggage!

Conditions for transporting liquids in your hand luggage:

Contents of max. 100 ml each;

Exceptions: medication and baby food required for the voyage.

Important: holy water from Lourdes is subject to the same regulations as other liquids: not more than 100 ml in hand luggage. We advise you place your water in your hold luggage or in a canister to avoid dispute.

Before going through security checks:

  • Present all the liquids you are transporting to the security officers for examination in their packaging bag;
  • Place your tablets and smartphones in the tray provided for this purpose;
  • Remove jackets, coats, belts and other metallic objects, such as change, lighters, keys, etc.;
  • Remove laptops or other electric devices from your hand luggage and their covers. They will be checked separately while you are being checked.

After the security checks

All of the items purchased in the departure lounge, particularly liquids, drinks, and perfumes, etc., are permitted in the cabin, regardless of content.

Purchases are therefore free to be made in duty free and at the departure lounge bar (within the limitations of customs regulations).
