Preparing For Your Flight – Handy Tips

1. Identify all of the liquids, aerosols and gels you plan on taking on your travels.

Look carefully through your luggage and identify items you think could be a liquid, aerosol or gel. Pay particular attention to toiletries and cosmetics.

2. Identify all of the liquids, aerosols and gels that you NEED for your flight.

Separate any items that you believe you NEED to carry with you on the flight. The most common items people wish to carry are deodorant, moisturiser and lip balm.

3. 100ml or less? You can carry it on board.

Review the items you plan on carrying with you on the flight.
Are they 100ml or less? If so, then you can pack them into one transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of no more than 20cm x 20cm.

Your plastic bag will need to seal easily.

Generally, you should be able to fit a maximum of five 100ml items into a 20cm x 20cm bag before it becomes difficult to seal.

4. Packing your bags.

Items not essential for your flight, and any items more than 100ml, will need to be packed into your check-in luggage.

Even if you believe an item is very important, it should still be packed into your check-in luggage if it is over 100ml.

Any items greater than 100ml, (even if partially filled) that are not checked-in will have to be surrendered at the security screening point and will be destroyed.

If you wish to take a personal water bottle or canister with you during your flight, arrive at the airport with it empty – filling it with water AFTER security screening.
