Planning to go abroad

Remember to allow extra time for security checks for flights to and from UK, EU, USA and many other airports and note new security restrictions for Hand Luggage:
Each passenger can usually only carry ONE item of hand baggage through the airport security search check point with a maximum hand luggage size of 56cm x 45cm x 25cm. Please remember that any other bags, such as handbags, laptops bags etc. (that may be allowed by certain airlines like BA) may only be carried within the single item of cabin baggage and some hand luggage may not fit in overhead lockers for flights on smaller city airport planes. (Check beforehand for exceptions such as for violins or larger instruments that may require the purchase of extra seat).

Certain items such as liquids may only be allowed if container capacity is less than 100ml (including perfumes, sprays and aerosols) and they must be put in a single transparent resealable plastic bag approx 20cm x 20cm. (Small freezer bag size). Anything outside these limits will NOT be allowed in your hand luggage but may be allowed in hold luggage.

If you want to take larger containers of liquids or aerosol cans on flights please remember to put all liquid items and also any sharp items into your hold baggage before checking in. This includes water and other drinks, creams, sprays, spray deodorants, lotions, pastes, toothpaste and gels. (Please note that some liquids can still be purchased in duty free and departure areas). All sharp items will also have to be put in hold baggage beforehand.

If in doubt about what you may carry on board and what has to be placed in hold luggage then please contact local Department of transport or other authorities.

IMPORTANT: See AIR SAFETY section on Travel Advice page regarding items you may take on board an aircraft.
