Do you require lens cleaner on board or want to take shampoo with you in your hand luggage? Keep the safety requirements in mind. This way you can be sure that you do not have to leave anything behind at the airport, which would be a real pity!
Tip: Transparent resealable plastic bags that meet the European requirements can be purchased in various shops (such as supermarkets).
Put simply, a liquid is any item with liquid contents. Examples:
Water and other (alcoholic) beverages, syrup and soup.
Perfume, gels, creams, lotions and aerosols.
Toiletries such as toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant (also rollers), shaving cream and liquid make-up (such as mascara, lipstick and nail polish).
You will have to pass through safety screening at the airport. You must show your transparent plastic bag with contents separately. Are the containers closed and easily fit into the resealable plastic bag? Perfect! Baby food, medicines, cooling elements for medicines, your coat or jacket and electronic devices (laptop) must be removed from your bag during the safety screening.
Tip: After the security screening, you can still buy liquids, such as beverages and perfume, at European airports. If necessary, your purchases will be sealed.
