Hand luggage

Hand luggage weighing a total of 5 kg can be taken on board. This luggage may include laptops or cameras. The size of the luggage may not exceed 45x35x20 centimetres.
Passengers may also carry a handbag, an outer garment, umbrella and a bag containing, for example, tax free goods if this can fit underneath the flight seat in front of the passenger. 

Liquids

  • Liquids, creams, jellies and sprays of up to 100 ml (1 dl) in containers may be stored in the hand luggage. Bottles, cans, tubes etcetera, are to be placed, and must fit, in a transparent one-liter reclosable plastic bag.
  • Passengers with boarding cards may bring one (1) one-liter plastic bag each onboard the flight.

If possible, pack your plastic bag before arrival at the airport, which will make the check-in procedure all the more swift. If you don’t have access to transparent reclosable one-liter bags, they are available for free at the airport.

Additionally, you may bring the following onboard the flight:

  • Liquid medicines needed during the trip.
  • Baby food needed during the trip.
  • Liquids that are part of a special diet needed during the trip.

Pack the medicine, baby food and special diet so you can display them without issue at the airport’s security check. They are not required to be stored in plastic bags. Keep in mind that sodas and juices are not approved as baby food.

Larger electronic items, such as laptops and camcorders, must be removed from their bags and X-rayed seperately. The same applies to coats and other outerwear.

In the security check you are required to:

  • Place your transparent plastic bag with liquids on the conveyor belt.
  • Show your liquid medicines, baby food and/or diet food to the security staff.
  • Remove your coat and other eventual outerwear and place on the conveyor belt.
  • Remove your laptop and other electronic devices of similar size from your bag and place them on the conveyor belt.

The following is classed as liquids:

Jellies, creams, liquid and solid mixtures, water, toothpaste, hair gel, beverages, soups, juices, perfumes, shaving creams, aerosols and other items similar texture.

You may not bring containers that hold more than 100 ml (1 dl). Therefore, you are not allowed to bring a 150ml container consisting of 75ml liquid. An empty container is not classed as liquid, and may therefore be brought onboard.

If requested by the security staff, you are to hand over your medicines, baby food and/or diet food for review.
