Each passenger is permitted to carry one item of cabin baggage through the airport security search point.
The dimensions of hand luggage must not exceed 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (22in x 17.7in x 9.8in approx), including wheels, handles and side pockets. This is equivalent to the size of a small roller suitcase.
Passengers boarding planes in EU countries are now allowed to carry liquids in containers no more than 100ml in capacity brought to the airport contained in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag - itself no more than a litre in capacity.
The definition of liquids includes:
Gels, pastes, lotions, liquid/solid mixtures
The contents of pressurised containers, eg toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfume, deodorant, shaving foam, aerosols, etc The following liquids are also permitted through the airport security search point:
Prescription medicines in liquid form sufficient and essential for the flight (eg diabetic kit), as long as verified as authentic
Baby milk and liquid baby food (accompanying passenger may be asked to test this)
Once through security, passengers can buy items in the departures lounge and take them on board.
To help with the security process, passengers are also encouraged not to include items which could contain liquids (eg bottles, flasks, tubes, cans, plastic containers etc) in their cabin baggage.
All laptops and large electrical items (eg hairdryers) must be removed from the bag and placed in a tray so that such items neither obscure nor are obscured by the bag.
If passengers have any questions on their travel arrangements or security in place at airports they should contact their agent, airport or airline.
