Restricted items

As a preventive and safety measure for everyone, carry-on and checked baggage is controlled by airport staff. 

There are certain restrictions that you should bear in mind when travelling, and these restrictions may vary depending on the destination of your trip. In order to avoid any delay or inconvenience, you should know prohibited or restricted items, and the limitations on the amount of liquid that can be carried.

Liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) permitted in your carry-on baggage

Some countries impose restrictions in respect of liquids, aerosols and gels carried in the passengers’ cabin, and you may only carry a limited amount on board.

  • Containers with non-flammable liquids, aerosols and gels may contain up to 100 ml (3.4 oz) each.
  • They must all fit in one transparent one-liter re-sealable plastic bag so that the contents of the bag are visible.

Some examples of products containing liquids, aerosols and gels include toothpaste, creams, lotions, cosmetics, shaving foam, aerosol deodorants, among others.

Alcoholic beverages:

  • Alcoholic beverages can be carried as carry-on baggage (provided that local authorities so permit it) or as checked baggage, but each bottle cannot be over 70 % alcohol and the limit will be 5 liters per passenger.
  • Alcoholic beverages can be carried as carry-on baggage (provided that local authorities so permit it) or as checked baggage, in the case of alcoholic beverages that do not exceed 24 % alcohol (wine, beer, sparkling wine, etc.).
  • In the case of alcoholic beverages with more than 24 % but not more than 70 % alcohol, carriage is limited to 5 liters per passenger in the cabin.

Carriage of liquids, aerosols and gels in excess of 100 ml is only permitted in the following cases:

  • Baby food (provided that the baby is travelling), including breast milk/formula, juice and liquid or gel foods to be consumed during the flight, or other foods for special diets.
  • Medication, which must be duly labeled and accompanied by a prescription or physician’s order certifying that it must be carried as carry-on baggage for use during the trip.
  • Tax free items: items purchased after the security checkpoint of the airport. You should bear in mind the restrictions on tax free liquids at your destination or connecting point.
