There are some general principles of transporting items on board an aircraft

  • Liquids, gels and aerosols
  • Medications
  • Food
  • Electronic equipment and outdoor clothing


Please note that the security personnel has the right to request for removal from the cabin and checked baggage, every object which does not meet the requirements. The following list is merely illustrative and its purpose is to show passengers which objects can be considered as dangerous.

Please also note that the air carrier has the right to set their own restrictions such as amount or weight of luggage. For more detailed information on this issue, contact the carrier with whom you have entered into a contract of carriage.

At the same time we would like to point out that, regardless of the list below, the regulations of carriage of dangerous goods and the relevant customs and sanitary restrictions apply.

Liquids, gels and aerosols

Passengers are allowed to carry liquids, gels and aerosols through the security control with the assumption that they are placed in maximum 100 ml/100 g containers, and all containers are located in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag with a capacity of less than one liter. Approximate dimensions of the bag are 22 cm x 15 cm. One passenger can carry one bag.

It is allowed to board planes bringing food for infants such as: milk powder, liquid milk, water and fruit juices in amounts intended to be eaten during the travel.

Note: If the container does not have the factory capacity mark, may be treated as exceeding 100ml and not allowed to bring on board an aircraft.



Transport of liquid medications in hand luggage is possible, provided that the medications are necessary for the passenger during the journey. The screening personnel may ask you to confirm the authenticity of the medicine. Furthermore, it must be placed in a plastic bag. Passengers approaching the security check shall personally notify the officers of carrying the medications without waiting for the result of control.

In order to speed up the screening process, passengers should report any liquids, gels and aerosols in cabin baggage separately for screening, for example, by placing them in a separate container when approaching the x-ray machine to screen baggage. If possible, passengers should have documentation of the medication (eg medical certificate).



Products in the solid state, such as chocolate, sandwiches, fruit and vegetables are allowed in any amount (subject to the provisions of the customs). Food in the liquid state, such as yogurts, creams, jams and jellies are restricted and should be put in 100 ml containers and the containers must fit in a 1-liter plastic bag.

If you plan to take in food, cooking utensils, knives and any other sharp items, please put them into your check-in luggage.

If you are traveling to another country, we advise you to check with the airline regulation in this area before departure as other restrictions may exist in the other countries, which may be important when planning a return trip.


Electronic equipment and outdoor clothing

According to EU regulations in the field of civil aviation security electronic equipment (laptops, cameras) and outerwear must be checked as a separate piece of luggage. Therefore, approaching the security checkpoint, please remove all electronics from cabin baggage and put it separately to control. Please do accordingly if you carry outerwear (jackets, coats, jackets).



For air travel, the transport of certain items on board the aircraft might affect your safety.

What are the hazardous materials?

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS are objects or substances which are capable of creating a significant risk to your health, safety, and carried by your personal property during air travel.

Hazardous materials may be objects of daily use: dry ice, sprays and perfumes, bleach, batteries, adhesives and many other items that do not normally raise our concerns during their use.

How hazardous materials may affect the safety and comfort of the flight?

  • Some items may automatically by friction or heat generation kindle a fire in the passenger's baggage (safety matches, lighter, diving flashlight);
  • Some substances (bleach) can dramatically stimulate the oxidation of the combustion of other materials.


Therefore, before you begin your journey, please refer to the listed materials below, and pack your lagguage with care.

Check if the items that you intend to put in your luggage (cabin or registered) are marked:




  • If you find one of them - consider whether the object on which the mark appears is necessary during your trip.

    If you have any doubt as to whether the object can be hazardous for air transport , you can contact the airline on which you will take a flight, or inquire about it the airport transportation service.

    Please refer to the table below, which contains a list of some of the items that air transport is perceived as dangerous and their conditions of carriage.
