Hand Luggage Allowance

When you fly, for 99% of airlines, you are allowed one main piece of hand luggage and one personal item (e.g. laptop, handbag, etc.). The size of these can vary by weight and dimensions. The one piece of personal hand luggage (laptop or handbag) must fit under the seat in front of you. The main hand luggage must fit in the overhead locker.

Liquids in Cabin Luggage

When flying, there are many regulations regarding what can be included in your carry on baggage and what can not. Be mindful that the word “liquid” covers a broader context than you might first think. For example, makeup,  jars of food, hand lotions, and deodorants are also considered liquids.

Nearly all airlines have strict regulations: 

  • The liquid must be in a container that has a volume no larger than 100ml

  • Pack all liquid containers in a 1 litre transparent plastic bag. The bag must be able to zip shut and cannot have dimensions larger than 20cm x 20cm.

  • You must take the bag out of your cabin luggage to show at the security check at the airport.
