There are strict baggage restrictions set for international flights for the security of all persons aboard the plane. Please find some of the restrictions outlined briefly below:
For security reasons, all knives, sharp objects or cutting implements of any kind and any length, whether of metal or other material, and some sporting goods, must be packed in your checked baggage. They cannot be carried in your hand luggage or on you in person. If you do not follow this baggage restriction, all forbidden objects will be found going through airport security points and will be confiscated from you. Once you have had an object confiscated it will not be returned to you. - Passengers carrying hypodermic needles will need to declare them at the screening point. - Passengers that wish to carry liquids, aerosols or gels in their hand luggage must follow the restrictions below:
· Liquid, aerosol or gel products must be in containers of 100 millilitres/grams or less.
· The containers must be carried in one transparent, resealable plastic bag.
· The four sides of the bag's sealed area must add up to no more than 80 centimetres (e.g. 20x20 cm or 15x25 cm).
· Only one bag is allowed per passenger (Carer’s may hold the bags of persons in their care) and all containers must fit comfortably with the resealable bag.
Please note that sharp objects include but are not limited to: any knife, including paper knives, carpet knives, box cutters, letter openers, scissors of any kind, tradesman's tools, screwdrivers, corkscrews, darts and knitting needles.
Baggage Restrictions are followed very carefully and should not be taken lightly. If you do not obey baggage restrictions the items that are in offence will be confiscated and by law you will not get them back.
If you have any issues understanding this outline of baggage restrictions please phone your airline to find out more.
