New Aviation Security Measures for Carry-on’s – i.e. no liquids

This currently only applies to international flights (or flights through the international terminal, via an international aircraft). They are in effect from 31 March 2007.

  • Each container of liquids, aerosols or gels in carry-on cannot exceed 100ml.
  • All containers must be sealed, in a transparent one-litre plastic bag (sandwich ziplock style or larger, from the picture).
  • You are only allowed one plastic bag.
  • Prescription medicines, baby products, and required non-prescription medication is permitted, but proof of need may be required.

They mention that once you hit a screening point, you’ll have to surrender even duty free. Of course, you can purchase it after the screening point (be weary if visiting the US, Canada, Europe), and if you’re bringing it in from overseas they have some guidelines on how it needs to be sealed. Beware if you’re a transit passenger.

They can also now randomly frisk you, if required. This is in addition to screening you for explosives.

Pack your liquids into check-in luggage if you must. Read the FAQ for more information.

    My gosh, Henry has a point.

    This has something to do with the bans:
    For someone (ie., me) who carries-on a wash-pouch full of toothpaste, face wash, etc etc, this is really, really sad.

    I think that’s “100ml”, by the way…

    Yeah, it’s apparently a big technical issue to change times especially as we have over 50 cities around the world. It will be fixed soon.
