In your hand luggage, place only the items that you require or wish to have with you during the flight. The less hand luggage you carry, the more smoothly you will get through security screenings. Present your liquids separately from other hand luggage for screening at security.
Liquids and powder
You can carry liquids only in containers with a volume not exceeding 100 ml in a transparent, resealable bag no larger than 1 liter. Each passenger ist allowed to carry one bag.
Exceptionally, security may open bottles or containers for screening. Solely for security reasons, liquids may not be permitted.
Medication, special foods
You can also carry medication and foods for special dietary requirements in containers larger than 100 ml.
In general, duty-free purchases of liquids, creams, etc. from any airport or aircraft can be carried in your hand luggage.
However, these items must be carried with proof of purchase in an undamaged, resealable security bag and checked using a special device. This device is also used to inspect liquid medications and foods for special dietary needs.
Regulations for travel to the USA
The US Transportation Safety Authority (TSA) has made changes to security regulations for flights to the USA. The new rules take effect on June 30, 2018. The list of items banned in hand luggage will now include powders and powder-like substances in containers larger than 350ml.
Powders or powder-like substances in containers with a volume of less than 350ml may also be banned from hand luggage if the substance cannot be clearly identified as non-suspicious. For further details, please contact the TSA or national authorities.
We advise all passengers travelling to destinations in the USA either to refrain from carrying powders or powder-like substances, or to pack them in check-in luggage.
