On 4 October 2006 the European Commission adopted a regulation restricting carrying liquids aboard aircraft. The regulation which entered into force on 6 November 2006 is the European Commission’s response to new threats in civil aviation.

The regulation brings greater security for passengers and civil aviation, closes loopholes in defending against potential terrorist attacks using liquid explosives, and ensures that security measures within the EU are uniform. The regulation limits the liquids that passengers can take past security control points at airports and then onto the aircraft. It applies to all flights departing from airports in the EU, regardless of their destination or the nationality of the carrier.

These rules only apply to hand luggage. Passengers will still be allowed to carry small quantities of personal care products in their hand luggage (perfumes, creams, gels, etc.), provided that the containers or packaging do not contain more than 100 ml and can easily be placed in transparent plastic bags (volume: one liter). Passengers must show liquids stored in this way at the security control point and submit them for security checks. Certain exceptions are permitted such as medicines and food needed during the flight, including baby food.

Additionally the rules require passengers to take off coats and jackets at security control points and to remove portable computers and larger electrical devices from their hand luggage. The regulation also specifies the maximum permitted dimensions for hand luggage (56 x 45 x 25 cm), with the possibility of certain exceptions such as for musical instruments.

Forbidden items

In general, you may not carry substances and items such as: radioactive materials, explosives, inflammable liquids, propane and/or butane cylinders, weapons (except for hunting and sports purposes), knives, poisons, corrosive substances, acids, magnets, nor infectious bodies, such as viruses and bacteria. Dangerous items also include aerosol sprays, matches and other dangerous items such as magnetized or irritating material. Bear in mind that this is not a complete list of hazardous materials. Carrying of dangerous objects aboard aircraft is a legal offence and may result in a penalty. Please ask your airline or travel agent for further details. .

Pets

Passengers are requested to make all the necessary arrangements concerning the transport of pets, such as supplying appropriate documentation prior to their trip. As a rule, pets are transported in a specially provided area of the cargo hold. Airline companies usually allow small pets in the passenger cabin (such as dogs, cats, birds). A pet has to be carried in a suitable cage or basket with a waterproof bottom. Transport of pets is charged extra at the rates applicable to excess baggage. Please, contact your airline or travel agent for further details.

Firearms

When checking-in, passengers have to report any firearms, which can only be transported in a special locked compartment, under the captains authority. For further information, please contact your airline or your travel agent.

Security tips
