Whether you're flying with Ryanair, easyJet, TUI, Jet2, or British Airways, navigating airlines' hand luggage rules in 2024 is no easy feat, from the rules on what you can actually bring for free to the food that's banned onboard .

Oh, and that's before you even get to the list of items that are banned entirely, or could land you in serious trouble at airport security.

Luckily for easyJet passengers, the airline has issued plenty of guidance as it wants people "to be able to pack in confidence" reports the Daily Record .

We take a look at some of the bans and restrictions you need to know before you start packing your bag.

It's worth noting that some rules can also vary depending on the destination you're flying to, so if there's something you're not sure about, your best bet is always to get in touch with the airline directly as they will be able to advise on the rules.

Sadly Brits are going to have to wait a little longer for the 100ml liquids rule to be scrapped in UK airports, as the latter have struggled to meet the original June 2024 deadline set by the government. That means that this summer, the current restrictions will be in place no matter what airline you're flying with.

Under the current rules, all liquids and gels in your hand luggage must be in containers no larger than 100ml. All of these should fit within one transparent, resealable bag of dimensions 20cm x 20cm.

However it's worth noting that once you've passed airport security, the limit won't apply if you buy drinks, toiletries or other liquids in duty free.

Alcohol bought at the airside departure lounge can be taken into the cabin, provided it remains unopened. Alcohol must not exceed 70% abv and should be packed either in an airport shopping bag or in your cabin bag. The airline enforces: "It's strictly forbidden to drink any alcohol that has not been purchased on board the aircraft and those found consuming their own alcohol may face prosecution."

You can bring food into the cabin. There is a 100ml limit for liquid food such as soup or custard - and these must be in clear containers.. Different countries have different regulations about importing food and drink, so check the rules for your destination before heading to the airport. If in doubt, get in touch with easyJet direct who can advise if there are any restrictions.

Hot drinks, baby food and milk

You can bring hot drinks on board if you've bought them at the airport and they have a lid on.

Thankfully, the 100ml liquid limit doesn't apply to baby food, milk or sterilised water, provided that the total amount is no more than one litre. You may be asked to taste it for security reasons. If you're travelling with a baby you may want to check out our dedicated guide to airline rules on baby food and prams .

For example, as well as your usual hand luggage allowance, easyJet allows parents to bring two additional items for children free of charge, but these will be placed in the hold. This includes a travel cot, pushchair, car seat, collapsible or non-collapsible pram, booster seat and/or baby back carrier. Infants under two will need to sit on their parent's lap, and won't get an extra bag, unless you've booked a separate seat for them.

Cigarettes and e-cigarettes

You can carry cigarettes in your cabin bag however you should check how many cigarettes you're allowed to bring into your destination country. Lighters can be taken on board but they must be carried in your pocket with the airline warning that matches are not allowed on board.

When it comes to e-cigarettes, you can carry a maximum of two spare batteries in your cabin bag but they cannot go in the hold. They warn: "You can't smoke any type of cigarette on the plane. It's a criminal offence to do so. Re-charging of e-cigarettes or vaping devices is strictly prohibited on board."

Sharp objects

You can bring tweezers, scissors with rounded ends and blades less than 6cm long into the cabin. Razor blades are only allowed in the cabin if they're set in plastic. Knives with a blade not exceeding 6cm can be taken on board. Other sharp objects are not allowed in the cabin. Visit easyJet's dangerous goods page for more information.

Pets and assistance dogs

Animals are not allowed on easyJet flights, but recognised registered guide and assistance dogs are an exception.

Camping equipment or stoves

Camping stoves and fuel containers with flammable liquid must be carried in the aircraft hold, provided the container is drained of all liquid before the flight. If carrying a used camping stove or fuel tank, allow the empty fuel tank or container to drain for at least one hour.

easyJet says: "The fuel tank or container must then be left uncapped for a minimum of 6 hours to allow any residual fuel to evaporate. The fuel tank or container must have the cap securely fastened and be wrapped in absorbent material, such as paper towels, and be placed in a polyethylene or equivalent bag. The top of the bag must then be sealed or gathered and closed with an elastic band or string."

Camera recording equipment

Cameras can exceed the usual size restrictions for baggage (maximum dimensions 63cm x 27cm x 28cm length x width x height). They should be stowed in the overhead locker length-wise to minimise space usage.

There's no requirement for them to be stored inside a bag, and they can't be kept under the seat in front of you. The lithium battery must be easily removable, warns easyJet.

Smart luggage

Smart luggage, or bags containing a lithium battery or power bank used to power itself or recharge other devices, comes with certain restrictions. There are limitations on the type of lithium batteries permitted in the hold.

easyJet has issued guidance for passengers travelling with smart luggage and musical instruments. For those checking in smart luggage, the airline instructs: "If the smart luggage is to be checked in and put in the hold, you need to disconnect and remove the lithium battery/power bank from the smart luggage at Bag Drop and take it into the cabin with you. Any exposed terminals should be protected from short circuit."

When carrying smart luggage in the cabin, they add: "If the smart luggage is to be carried in the cabin, you need to disconnect and remove the lithium battery/power bank from the smart luggage, but it can stay in the bag. In all cases, for safety reasons, the lithium battery/power bank needs to be disconnected, so if you are unable to remove it from your luggage, we won't be able to accept the bag on board."

Musical instruments

Regarding musical instruments, easyJet clarifies that any instrument larger than 30cm x 120cm x 38cm, such as a double bass or harp, cannot be taken on board as cabin baggage and must be added as hold luggage. They advise ensuring instruments are packed safely and securely and recommend purchasing specialist travel insurance before flying.

For cabin baggage, the size of the musical instrument allowed depends on the passenger's cabin bag allowance. easyJet states: "Any instrument larger than 30 x 117 x 38cm can't be taken on board as cabin baggage unless you buy a separate seat for it - and it meets our safety requirements."

Alternatively, passengers have the option to add hold luggage for their instruments to their booking.

easyJet Carry On Rules: Everything You Need to Know 1

easyJet Carry-On Rules: Everything You Need to Know!

If you want to avoid checking a bag & paying fees on easyJet, you need to read this…

easyJet Carry-On Dimensions

Easyjet carry-on weight limit, recommended carry-on baggage, easyjet personal item size, the tsa 3-1-1 rule, carry-on food, easyjet pet policy, more related articles…..

If you’re planning to travel with just a carry-on , you’ll need to be up to speed with airline carry-on policies.  Specifically, the various rules and regulations each carrier has for what you can and cannot “carry on” to the plane.   Each airline’s rules are different, so don’t just assume what works for one will work for all airlines.

If you are going to be flying a low-cost carrier, like easyJet, you will need to be aware of their specific guidelines for carry-on sizes, liquids, and other unique items that you may want to bring on board.

In this article, we’ll explain everything you need to know about easyJet’s carry-on policy. This includes easyJet carry-on size and weight limits, personal items, liquids, pets, prohibited items, and other rules and restrictions you should know before boarding your flight.

easyJet Carry On Size & Weight Limits

easyJet allows everyone to bring one small cabin bag on board (up to 45 x 36 x 20cm, including any handles or wheels), which must fit under the seat in front of you. There is no weight limit for this bag as long as you can carry and store it yourself.

easyjet carry on size personal item size limits

If you have booked an Upfront or Extra legroom seat you can also bring an additional large cabin bag on board. The maximum size of this bag is 56 x 45 x 25 cm (including any handles or wheels) and it must be able to fit in the overhead storage bin. These seats can be selected at the time of booking, or at any time before your check-in via the Manage Bookings section of the easyJet website.

easyJet size requirements for a carry-on are:

  • Dimensions for carry-on baggage: max. 56 x 45 x 25 cm
  • Dimensions for personal items: max. 45 x 36 x 20 cm

If the bag is too big, you’re going to have to pay a fee, so it’s always better to know your bag size and the limitations in advance. See the table on easyJet’s fees and charges page for full details, as they can get fairly expensive.

easyJet does not have a weight limit for carry-on bags, as long as you can carry and store them yourself. The weight issue applies to check baggage since they weigh your checked bags when you check in for your flight.

The weight limit for a checked bag is 23kg. You can buy extra weight in 3kg units, up to a maximum of 32kg per bag. No single item can weigh more than 32kg.

If you are looking for an international-sized carry-on bag, the Travelpro 20-inch Global Expandable Spinner Carry-on is definitely one to consider. It’s durable, reasonably priced, and holds enough for shorter trips (3-5 days). Plus the spinner wheels make it very easy to get through the airport quickly and effortlessly.

Case Dimensions: 

  • H: 19 in. W: 15 in. D: 7.75 in.
  • Weight: 7.3 lbs.

Fits 80% of International Airlines* as a Carry-On

easyJet doesn’t clarify what it considers a personal item. They just state that you are allowed to bring on a “cabin bag” which would include things like backpacks, purses, laptop cases, etc.

They do make an exception for infants. If you’re traveling with an infant (under the age of 2) who will be seated on your lap, you are allowed to bring an additional baby changing bag with you (max. 45 x 36 x 20 cm). This bag must also be placed under the seat in front of you.

However, while they don’t charge you for the extra bag you get to bring with the infant, they will charge you to have an infant on your lap – normally around $34 each way 🙁

Carry-On Liquids: easyJet Liquids Policy

The rules for carry-on liquids are set by the TSA in the US and the EASA and European Commission in Europe.  easyJet doesn’t have its own specific Liquids Policy, they just enforce the rules and policies of the Authorities.

  • Containers with liquids and gel-like substances may hold up to 100 ml (maximum capacity must be printed on the container).
  • All containers must be carried in a plastic bag (transparent, resealable, max. capacity of 1 liter). One bag per person.
  • The bag must be presented separately at security. Take your liquids out of your carry-on baggage at the security screening point and present them separately. In exceptional cases, liquids may be opened in the course of security checks and removed from their outer packaging.
  • Liquid duty-free goods purchased at an international airport or on board an aircraft outside the EU must be transported in a tamper-proof, certified bag on connecting flights via an EU airport. The proof of purchase must be inside the bag and the bag must be sealed by the retailer.
  • Medicine and special food (e.g. baby food) can be carried outside the plastic bag and must also be presented at security.

Below is a table that provides some examples of Non-solid Food and Personal Items that are considered “liquids”:

Each passenger may carry liquids, gels, and aerosols in travel-size containers that are 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters. Each passenger is limited to one quart-size bag of liquids, gels, and aerosols. Common travel items that must comply with the 3-1-1 liquids rule include toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, and lotion.

Any liquid that does not meet the TSA 3-1-1 rule will either have to be checked with your luggage or will be thrown away at the security checkpoint.

There are two different scenarios pertaining to food: 

  • The food you bring with you to the airport, and
  • The food you buy at the airport after you have gone through security.

An important thing to note is the classification of liquid foods vs. solid foods.  Certain liquids cannot be brought through security, so you have to be aware of the rules for bringing liquids through security and if your food is considered a “liquid”.

The general rule is “If you can spill it, spread it, spray it, pump it, or pour it, then it’s considered a liquid or gel”.   This means your food may be considered a liquid and will fall under the TSA 3-1-1 liquids rule , which mandates that any liquid, gel, cream, aerosol, or paste in a carry-on must be 3.4 ounces or less, and fit in one quart-size resealable bag (only one such bag is allowed per passenger).

These rules regarding liquids that have been established by the TSA are also followed in Europe and most other countries including Canada, the U.K. Japan, China, Australia, etc.

Once you get through security, you can bring just about any food on the plane that you buy at the airport.

Animals are not allowed on easyJet flights, with the exception of registered guide and assistance dogs.

For more information, see easyJet’s service dog policy: Special assistance .

Prohibited Items and Dangerous Goods

There are certain items that are considered dangerous and classified as hazardous material.  Dangerous goods are prohibited from both your carry-on and checked bags on all flights.  These rules are not specific to any airline and are mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency.

Items considered  “dangerous goods”  are prohibited under easyJet’s carry-on policy and include the following:

  • Firearms and ammunition
  • Stunning devices, mace, tear gas, and  pepper spray
  • Poisonous, infectious, or radioactive substances
  • Sharp or pointed objects (knives, swords, cutting instruments,  razors , ice skates, carpet knives, metal scissors, box cutters, or similar items) 
  • Camping equipment containing flammable liquids or gasses 
  • Flammable liquids, including gasoline and kerosene
  • Self-Balancing devices such as hoverboards, including electric skateboards, balance boards, and gravity boards
  • Medical or liquid oxygen 
  • Torch lighters , lighter fluid, strike-anywhere matches, and fire starters
  • Wet-cell batteries

The following items  are not considered “dangerous goods”  and are allowed when packaged properly, in accordance with FAA regulations

  • Hiking or trekking poles
  • Hair dryer/Straightener
  • Sunscreen/bug spray
  • Food as a carry on
  • Fishing hooks
  • Fragile glass items

A complete list can be found on the FAA website , the TSA website , and/or the EASA website .

Liquids in Hand Luggage at UK Airports: All Rules Explained

easy jet 100ml

Who’s behind these travel insights? I’m Sebastian, your luggage expert since 2017. On my site, you’ll find comprehensive information and recommendations for the perfect travel baggage.

100ml Airport Rule

Regulations for Liquids in Hand Luggage

When packing liquids in your hand luggage, be aware of the 100ml Airport Rule that restricts each container to a maximum of 100ml. In the UK, this regulation is evolving; several airports have already eased these limits, and all others are required to do so by June 2025 (read the next section for more details). However, keep in mind that this rule is still strictly enforced at most international airports. Let’s delve into the specifics of the 100ml rule:

100ml Airport Rule

  • Only containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml are allowed.
  • All containers must be packed in a transparent, resealable plastic bag with a maximum capacity of one litre and dimensions around 20×20 cm.
  • The plastic bag must be completely closed.
  • Each passenger is allowed only one bag.
  • The number of containers is unlimited, provided they fit comfortably in the bag and allow it to be sealed properly.
  • Liquids in containers larger than 100 ml are prohibited.

You can buy appropriate bags for your liquids – like freezer bags – at supermarkets or drugstores. For a more durable option, consider special toiletry bags, reusable multiple times. If you’re looking to decant personal care products, specialized bags with bottles offer great convenience.

Changes to the 100ml Rule in the UK

Current Status and 2025 Deadline

Change to 100ml Rule in UK 2024

Phasing Out the 100ml Rule: Globally, airports are moving away from the longstanding security measure that limits passengers to 100ml liquid containers in hand luggage. This change is aimed at simplifying air travel, making it less restrictive by allowing passengers to carry larger quantities of liquids through security checkpoints.

New Technology: The transition is supported by the integration of advanced CT X-ray scanners, which enhance the security process by enabling more thorough and efficient screenings. These devices allow liquids and electronics to remain in bags, reducing hassle for travelers and streamlining security procedures.

June 2025 Deadline: Initially set for June 2024, the UK deadline for full implementation of these scanners has been extended to June 2025 due to logistical challenges. Once in place, this technology will ease current limitations, increasing the permissible liquid container size from 100ml to 2 litres and thus improving the efficiency of airport security operations.

Status of Changes at UK Airports: London City, Teeside International, and Jersey airports have already removed the 100ml rule. Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, and Manchester, the largest airports in the UK, are now expected to meet the revised deadline of 2025 for full implementation of the new scanners, lifting liquid restrictions at that time.

Exceptions to the 100ml Airport Rule

In certain cases, you are allowed to transport additional liquids

Liquid Medicines in Hand Luggage

Liquid Medicines

Special rules apply to medications required during a flight , such as for diabetics. These can be brought on board in addition to the 1-litre bag. However, the need must be credibly demonstrated, for example, with a prescription or a medical certificate. Solid medications like tablets are not affected by these rules.

Baby Food on Plane

Baby Food on Plane

Baby food is not counted among the regulated hand luggage liquids either. However, this exception only applies if the child is traveling and is under 3 years old .

There’s no specific quantity limit , but in principle, this exception is only for the amount of baby food needed for the journey’s duration. It’s not permissible to carry larger amounts for the entire holiday. The food should also be suitable for babies, i.e., no sodas, caffeinated beverages, or similar items.

Other foods necessary for special dietary needs can also be carried, but a medical certificate or similar documentation is required.

Duty-Free Liquids

Duty-Free Liquids

The regulations also do not apply to liquids purchased in shops beyond the security checkpoints or on board an aircraft. Duty-free liquids are sealed at the time of purchase along with the sales receipt in a security bag with a red edge and must not be opened before reaching the final airport. This exception only applies to items with a sales receipt from the same day of the flight. Transferring with duty-free goods at other EU airports is also no issue as long as the bag remains closed and sealed until the end of the final leg. There’s no limit to the number of duty-free bags.

Empty Water Bottle in Hand Luggage

Is Taking It into the Cabin Allowed?

Empty Water Bottle Plane

Carrying your own drinks in containers over 100 ml is not permitted.

You can buy beverages either at the airport after security or directly on board. If you’re looking to save money, it’s permitted to bring an empty water bottle in your hand luggage .

After passing through security, you can refill your bottle. Some airports have drinking water dispensers, or you can use tap water from the restroom area.

You can use a regular water bottle , a thermos, or an empty PET bottle. The crucial factor is that the bottle must be completely empty. The size of the bottle generally doesn’t matter and is not restricted.

Be cautious with glass and metal bottles , as depending on their type and size, they may be prohibited in hand luggage for security reasons.

I use a collapsible water bottle because it’s extremely space-efficient and lightweight. It’s not only ideal for flying but also handy for excursions at your holiday destination.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Liquids in Hand Luggage

What counts as liquids on a plane?

The following items are considered liquids in hand luggage:

  • All types of beverages , including water and alcohol
  • Cosmetic and toiletry items such as shampoos, creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascara, and lip gloss
  • Aerosols & Sprays , including deodorants, sunscreens, and hairsprays
  • Gels , including hair gel, shower gel, and toothpaste
  • E-cigarette liquids , including fluids and gels
  • Liquid Foods such as soups, spreads, honey, oils, yogurt, etc.

Are aerosols allowed in hand luggage?

Yes, aerosols are permitted in hand luggage but must adhere to the same restrictions as other liquids. This means each aerosol container should not exceed 100ml, and all containers must fit within a single, transparent, resealable 1-litre plastic bag. This rule applies to items like deodorant sprays and hair sprays.

Does a deodorant stick count as a liquid?

According to the American Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a deodorant stick is not considered a liquid, so it should be able to be carried in hand luggage without any issues. Since most sticks contain less than 100ml, they can also be easily placed in the liquids bag, in case there are any problems at the security checkpoint. Please note that this does not apply to deodorant sprays or roll-ons, as these are considered liquids.

How many 100ml bottles can I take in my hand luggage?

You can carry as many 100ml bottles in your hand luggage as fit into a clear, resealable plastic bag. This bag must have a maximum volume of 1 litre and must be completely closed. All liquids you want to carry in your hand luggage must fit into this bag.

What happens if I violate the liquids rule?

If you violate the liquids rule for hand luggage, the items in question may be confiscated and disposed of by airport security. Fines are rather unusual, but additional security checks (e.g., explosives testing) may occur. To avoid delays and potential inconvenience, it is advisable to adhere to the existing regulations.

Can I transport larger quantities of liquids in checked luggage?

Yes, you can carry larger quantities of liquids in your checked luggage. However, there are some restrictions on dangerous liquids and substances. For example, many flammable or explosive materials are not allowed to be transported. Alcoholic beverages can usually be carried in limited quantities.

Do the containers in the liquids bag also have to be transparent?

No, the containers in the liquids bag do not have to be transparent. What matters is that the bag itself is transparent and has a resealable mechanism. The containers can be made of any material and do not have to be see-through. It’s only important that they do not exceed the maximum capacity of 100ml.

Can I take alcoholic drinks in my hand luggage?

Yes, as long as they are in containers of no more than 100 ml in the transparent liquids bag. Alcoholic drinks purchased after the security checkpoint are not subject to this restriction. However, be aware of any import restrictions of your destination country.

Yes, you can carry aerosols like 65ml deodorant, toothpaste, aftershave, and polygrip in travel sizes in your hand luggage as long as they are in a transparent, resealable bag. Each container must not exceed 100ml, and the total volume should fit within a 1-litre bag.

Hi, can I decant toiletries into small bottles? I read somewhere that this is only allowed if there is a label on the bottle with the measurement, and that you are not allowed to label it yourself. Is this true? Thanks.

Yes, you can decant toiletries into smaller bottles for air travel. It is not required that these bottles be labeled with their measurements. Airport security personnel have enough experience to estimate container sizes and can usually determine if a container exceeds the liquid limits. While labeled containers can help clarify any doubts about capacity, they are not mandatory.

Safe travels!

Thank you so much!

We fly through Heathrow in 3 weeks. Does the clear bag for liquids have to be like a zip-loc one, or can it be one of the TSA approved ones with a zipper sold on Amazon? They seem to be able to hold a bit more than a ziploc. Also, are eye drops and nasal sprays as well as arthritis cream considered liquids?

The clear bag for your liquids can indeed be one of the TSA-approved bags with a zipper that you find on Amazon, as long as it meets the size requirements—about 1 litre in capacity and approximately 20 cm by 20 cm. These bags often provide a bit more structure than a standard zip-lock bag, but they must still be transparent and resealable.

As for your other question, yes, eye drops, nasal sprays, and arthritis creams are considered liquids under the 100ml rule. Each of these items must be contained within containers of no more than 100ml, and they all need to fit comfortably within your clear liquids bag. However, if you are carrying medications such as eye drops or creams that exceed these limits, you can bring them in larger quantities if you have a doctor’s prescription or a medical certificate with you.

Do sheet facial masks count as a liquid? My daughter-in-law takes them as carry-on for regular flights to the US, and says they are not counted as a liquid. I’m travelling to Spain next month. Many thanks.

Sheet facial masks are generally not classified as liquids and usually don’t need to be stored in your clear liquids bag. However, masks that are heavily saturated with cream or gel might occasionally be questioned by security. If you want to ensure a hassle-free journey, you might consider placing them in your liquids bag, especially if they appear more ‘wet’ than typical dry sheets.

Best regards.

Hi Sebastian

Thank very much. The one’s I use aren’t too saturated, its just I have skin problems and these really help.

The new rules on carrying liquids through UK airport security

Air travel is about to get a little easier, with restrictions on liquids relaxed. With some airports struggling to adapt, here's what to expect this summer.

For almost two decades, the queue for airport security has seen travellers hastily gulping down their bottled water and cramming liquid toiletries — limited to 100ml apiece — into a single transparent bag.  

But not for much longer. In 2022, the UK government announced that by June 2024, all major airports in the country would be required by law to install high-tech new security scanners. This would allow airline rules on liquids to be scrapped, among other benefits.

With the promise of speedier queues through departure, it was initially good news. But now, four of the biggest airports — Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Manchester — are on course to miss the deadline, prompting fears of confusion this summer.  

What’s the 100ml rule?

It stipulates that passengers with hand luggage can only take liquids and creams in containers of up to 100ml on board an aircraft. These must be placed in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures about 20cm x 20cm. The bag must be able to close.

Why was it introduced?

The measures were implemented after a foiled plot by Al-Qaeda in August 2006, during which terrorists attempted to disguise liquid explosives as drinks at Heathrow.  

Why is it changing?

The primary driver is an improvement in security technology. More advanced CT scanners mean that security staff are able to take a more detailed look at passengers’ luggage. As well as negating the need to remove liquids and limit them to 100ml, the new machines mean electronics can stay in bags — without closer inspections —and prohibited items such as weapons and liquid explosives can be better detected. According to Smiths Detection, which makes the scanners, this is thanks to explosives detection algorithms and automated object recognition software.

Why is it taking so long?

Introducing the new machines is a huge financial burden for airports and poses a logistical challenge.“It was always going to be a struggle for the big airports,” a senior aviation source told The Times. “One of the biggest issues they face is fitting the new scanners and retraining staff without impacting the flow of passengers.”

Heathrow, which has 146 security lanes across its terminals, faces the biggest challenge in meeting the deadline, and will have the smallest percentage of new lanes installed come June. A spokesman for Gatwick says it will have made “significant progress” by June but “plans to have completed the operation required to install the remaining scanners in Q1 2025”. Security areas will need to be adjusted at several airports because of the size of the new scanners. The floors in some terminals, especially at Heathrow, need to be reinforced because of their added weight. “The existing scanner is like a washing machine,” says Nick Barton, chief executive of Birmingham Airport. “The new machines are the size of a Ford Transit.”

What impact are the scanners expected to have?

People failing to remove items from their bags or travelling with large bottles of liquids cause delays at airport security, as they result in additional checks. The new machines are expected to cut wait times dramatically, although the fear is that, in the short term, ‘mixed messaging’ will lead to delays — where airports still have both old and new technology, passengers won’t know what to expect. At London City, which has already completed the upgrade, the average time it takes to conduct security checks is now only three minutes and 45 seconds, down from seven minutes in 2022.  

What will happen this summer, and what’s next?

Discussions are ongoing. Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Manchester are expected to be given an extension until 2025, meaning passengers at these airports will be told to follow existing rules — even though some lanes will have been upgraded — to avoid queues. Other airports are understood to be on course, and passengers will benefit this summer. Along with London City, Teesside Airport has already scrapped the 100ml rule. This change will only affect departures from the UK — arrivals into the country will still have to follow the rules of their outbound airport.

This forms part of a raft of new technologies being introduced over the next decade. Facial recognition and AI are playing a big role: in the future, passengers will board planes without showing documents — faces will be automatically matched to passports. Border Force has also started a process to see e-passport gates replaced with ones that do not require them to be inserted.  

Is the change also happening in the US or elsewhere?  

There are other countries that are looking at amending the rules on liquids in light of the new technology, although the UK is among the first to make a blanket change. Spain is on course to follow suit by 2026, thanks to a phased installation of the new scanners. Some other transport hubs, such as Amsterdam’s Schiphol, Frankfurt and Milan Malpensa, have also installed similar ones, and there are a limited number of lanes at Geneva that passengers can choose to use.

In the US, many airports, such as Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson and Chicago's O'Hare, have already installed the new scanners and, in these, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has slightly relaxed the rules. Travellers here are generally able to leave their food, electronics and liquids in their bags as they pass through — but rules on keeping liquids travel-sized remain, permitting just 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less in a single one-quart transparent bag. A nationwide rule change is still expected to take some time, due to the sheer number of airports across the country. On the whole, travellers can expect to encounter legacy rules at some point on their travels over the coming years.

Ryanair, easyJet, Jet2 confirm current rules on liquids in hand luggage at airport check-in

A irlines and airports have confirmed the rules currently apply in the UK to taking hand luggage on your flight. The rules have been in place for a while but many still get caught out.

Passengers need to know that all liquid, gel or cream toiletries and cosmetics - which must be in containers of 100ml or less each - must be in one transparent resealable plastic bag ready for security staff to X-ray separately.

The bags, measuring around 20cm by 20cm, are normally available for free at airport security terminals. And it's important to note you can take only one bag per person. Any tubes or bottles that are more than 100ml have to go in your main luggage stowed in the hold.

Confusion over what's allowed came to light when American travel blogger Chloe Jade Meltzer was transferring through London's Heathrow Airport and was forced to ditch half of her toiletries - worth £236 - because they would not fit in the security-issued plastic bag . Chloe, who was travelling from San Francisco to Cotonou in Benin, West Africa, claims she had previously been given multiple bags rather than just one.

Ryanair rules on liquids

Ryanair said taking liquids, aerosols, and gels into the airport and on-board an aircraft is strictly subject to current security requirements. When passing through airport security screening, you will need to keep in mind:

  • Each item of Liquid carried must be in a container of no more than 100ml (3.4 ounces);
  • All liquids should be carried in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of up to 20cm x 20cm with a total capacity of up to 1 litre
  • You must be able to completely seal the bag and fit it in your hand baggage
  • The bag of liquids must be taken out of other hand baggage to be screened separately

If you are travelling with an infant (aged 8 days-2 years), you can bring as much baby milk, powdered milk, sterilised water, and baby food as you need for your flight even if this exceeds the usual limit on liquids. These don't need to fit in the transparent bag that is needed for all other liquids but please have them ready for inspection by airport security.

You can also carry on board as much liquid medicine as you need for your flight. Your medicine does not need to fit in the transparent bag that is needed for all other liquids but please have it ready for inspection by airport security.

easyJet rules on liquids

easyJet says you can only carry liquids, aerosols and gels in containers of 100ml or less when you pass through security. They should all fit into one transparent, re-sealable 20cm x 20cm bag.

It added: "In total, each customer can carry a maximum of 1,000ml through security. You can buy more liquids in the departure lounge should you need them."

Jet2 rules on liquids

Jet2 says there are restrictions on the amount of liquids, aerosols, and gels that you can take in your hand luggage, and recommend you pack liquids in your hold baggage where possible. If you need to take liquids through airport security in your hand luggage, it says you must note the following points:

  • containers must hold no more than 100ml
  • containers must be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm
  • contents must fit comfortably inside the bag, so it can be sealed
  • the bag must not be knotted or tied at the top
  • you’re limited to one plastic bag per person
  • you must show the bag at the airport security point

It added: "Please be aware bottles and packaging may need to be opened during screening by airport security."

Do these apply across the UK?

Yes. The GOV.UK website says there are restrictions on the amount of liquids you can take in your hand luggage and says that if possible, you should pack liquids in your hold baggage. Liquids include:

  • all drinks, including water
  • liquid or semi-liquid foods, for example soup, jam, honey and syrups
  • cosmetics and toiletries, including creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascara and lip gloss
  • sprays, including shaving foam, hairspray and spray deodorants
  • pastes, including toothpaste
  • gels, including hair and shower gel
  • contact lens solution
  • any other solutions and items of similar consistency

If you do take liquids in your hand luggage:

  • contents must fit comfortably inside the bag so it can be sealed
  • you're limited to 1 plastic bag per person

Liquids in containers larger than 100ml generally cannot go through security even if the container is only part full. There are some exemptions - you can take liquid containers larger than 100ml through security if they:

  • are for essential medical purposes
  • are for special dietary requirements
  • contain baby food or baby milk

You can also take liquids bought at an airport or on a plane (such as duty-free) through security if:

  • the items are sealed inside a security bag when you buy them
  • the receipt for the items is sealed in the security bag and visible

You must not open the security bag until you reach your final destination. Airport staff may need to open the items to screen the liquid at the security point.

And it cautions: "Other countries may have different rules on carrying liquids as a transit or transfer passenger. You should check these rules with the relevant airlines and airports before travelling."

Are these rules changing?

Rules on taking liquids and laptops through security at UK airports will change from June 2024, the Government announced . Passengers will be able to carry liquids in containers holding up to two litres in the biggest relaxation of airport security rules in decades.

Travellers will also no longer need to carry the containers in clear plastic bags, or remove tablet devices and laptops from their hand luggage at security checkpoints.

The Government has set all major UK airports a deadline of June 2024 to replace older security scanners with state-of-the-art CT scanners similar to those used in hospitals and able to produce high-quality 3D scans of bags from every angle. London City Airport is to become the UK's first to introduce the technology.

Changes will be gradual over the next two years so current rules will continue to apply and passengers should check with airports and airlines before travelling.

Transport Secretary Mark Harper said: "The tiny toiletry has become a staple of airport security checkpoints, but that's all set to change. I’m streamlining cabin bag rules at airports while enhancing security.

"By 2024, major airports across the UK will have the latest security tech installed, reducing queuing times, improving the passenger experience, and most importantly detecting potential threats.

"Of course, this won’t happen straight away – this is going to take two years to be fully implemented. Until then, passengers must continue following the existing rules and check before travelling."

The rules on liquids at airport check-ins

100ml Liquid Allowances and Restrictions on Flights

Since 2006 there have been restrictions placed on the carrying of liquids in carry-on flight baggage.

The move to restrict the carrying of liquids on flights was implemented as a reaction to terrorist activity.

Despite the threat level varying from year to year, it seems that restrictions on carrying liquids in your cabin baggage are here to stay.

What are the rules, restrictions and allowances for liquids on flights?

Broadly speaking, most of the major airlines and countries have implemented similar liquid restrictions. This is a sensible move aimed to reduce confusion where many airlines use the same airport, and consequently share the same airport security screening facilities. It is also less confusing for passengers on international flights knowing that the cabin baggage liquid restrictions will be broadly the same for their outward and return journeys.

The basic rules are:

  • All liquids that you bring to the airport in your carry-on baggage must be in containers no larger than 100ml or 3.4oz
  • All liquid containers in your cabin baggage must be kept in a clear plastic resealable bag for inspection or screening at airport security
  • Only one clear plastic bag of liquid containers may be carried per passenger travelling

Each airline provides specific guidance on the 100ml liquid restrictions so it important to check their instructions.

Common questions about liquids on flights

Q. Do these rules also apply to checked baggage in the aircraft hold?

A. No. The 100ml or 3.4oz liquid restrictions only apply to your carry-on baggage.

Q. What about liquids I buy at the airport?

A. The liquid restrictions apply to all liquids in your possession when you go through airport security. Any liquids you purchase after passing through security are allowed. In some cases duty free bottles may have to be placed in sealed bags, but they can still be carried on the flight.

Q. What counts as a liquid?

A. Any fluid of any kind is counted as aa liquid for these cabin baggage restrictions. This also includes pastes, gels, lotions, creams, sprays or aerosols. If in doubt, leave it out.

Here is list of some commonly carried liquids that will be subject to restrictions.

Drinks, perfume, aftershave, deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, shaving cream or gel, toiletries, cosmetics, hand cream, liquid foodstuffs or condiments, sun tan lotion, after sun products, hairspray, contact lens solution and much more.

Q. Are there exemptions for baby milk or medecines?

A. Yes. You can carry an amount of baby milk larger than 100ml if it will be required on the flight. Liquid medecines larger than 100ml are generally allowed in cabin baggage but you may need a doctor’s letter or a copy of your prescription.

If you've ever looked for affordable ways to travel throughout Europe, you must have run across the name EasyJet at some point. A British global low-cost airline company with its head office at London Luton Airport , it offers scheduled domestic and worldwide travel on more than 1,000 lines throughout more than 30 countries. The fleet of EasyJet consists of 136 Airbus A319-100 and 82 Airbus A320-200 aircraft.

With a wide range of choices to visit in Europe, what about your cabin bags & checked baggage?

Although EasyJet's baggage policies are less restrictive than those of Ryanair or other airlines, it is still best to be aware of them in advance. Let us discuss everything you need about the EasyJet's policy for cabin bags & checked luggage , including the foods and liquids, permitted onboard.

easyJet Cabin Bag Policy:

EasyJet has some of the most challenging baggage policies among European low-cost airlines. They mean it when they say "one bag only"! Most travelers are unaware of this restriction, which states that even a modest handbag, camera bag, etc., will not be permitted in addition to your carry-on bag for FREE.

Your free cabin bag must not exceed the maximum size of 45x36x20cm which is bigger than the free cabin allowance provided by Ryanair. From feedback, our customers have mentioned that the easyJet allowance is enough for a short trip which will require just your essentials.

However, this is sad news if you wish to bring more than a pair of shoes and some extra jeans because the latest update even makes the only bag you get a little one that fits in the seat in front of you.

You do have the option to take an additional larger cabin bag if you are an easyJet Plus cardholder or a Flexi fare customer. The maximum size for this is 56x45x25cm and will need to be able to fit in the overhead locker and weigh a maximum of 15kg.

easy jet 100ml

Before taking off, make sure to check the most recent guidelines.

easyJet Checked Baggage:

Passengers on EasyJet may reserve a maximum of three checked bags per traveler.

A regular bag weighs 23 kilograms, although there is a less expensive option with a 15 kg limit. The overall size of any checked bag cannot exceed 275 cm.

Online or in-person booking for checked baggage is available. Based on your route and the time of year, the price ranges from £9.49 to £42.49 when purchased online. It increases to £40 at the airport, and you must pay £50 for each item at the departure gate.

You will be charged extra baggage fees up to a maximum of 32 kg if your bag weighs more than allowed or is too large. Although you are allowed to take up to 32 kg total, it is advised not to cross 23 kg in each bag.

Sporting goods with EasyJet

Sporting goods are available for check-in as checked baggage at an extra cost to the passenger.

Small Pieces: It costs $47/€42/£37 online and $60/€53/£47 at the airport to transport small items like golf clubs, snowboards, skis, paragliders, etc. up to 20 kilograms.

Large Pieces: It costs $57/€50/£45 to provide large items online and $70/€62/£55 to deliver large items of approximately 32 kg.

EasyJet Musical Items

You may bring your musical items on board as carry-on baggage if it is not larger than 30 cm x 120 cm x 38 cm. When traveling on an EasyJet flight with a more extensive musical instrument, such as a cello or guitar, you must reserve a seat for the device.

Booking a seat for your musical device: It's easy to reserve a seat for your instrument. Use the passenger name "Mr. Seat Guitar" when adding a traveler's name to your reservation.

EasyJet Hand Baggage Policy

When flying with EasyJet, each person is allowed to bring one small cabin bag with them that can be no more than 45 x 36 x 20 cm in size and no more than 10 pounds in weight. It consists of a laptop bag, handbag, backpack, and small trolley case. Small cabin baggage does not have a weight restriction.

Large cabin bags can also be carried on board by travelers who have purchased an Up Front or Extra Legroom seat or have paid to add one to their reservation. They must check the additional baggage, and the EasyJet airport charges $50/45€/£40 for each piece at the check-in counter if you have more than is permitted. The cost rises to $63/€56/£50 for each additional carry-on if you arrive at the departure gate with too many bags.

Baby strollers and children who sit on their parent's laps do not qualify for the hand luggage allowance, so they must pack their belongings in the adult's checked luggage.

Aerolite 45x36x20cm easyJet Maximum Size Hard Shell Carry On Hand Cabin Luggage

Liquids allowed in easyjet's hand baggage.

There are only a few things that must be left behind while packing your EasyJet cabin luggage.

Liquid Rules by EasyJet:

Checkpoint security requires the display of every liquid.

  • Ten 100ml containers allow in your luggage.
  • The liquid must be in a container with a maximum volume of 100 ml.
  • Every liquid container must be kept in a clear plastic bag of 1 liter.
  • Especially if they are almost empty, larger containers are not allowed.

Remember that the definition of "liquid" is far more extensive than you might initially believe. Deodorants, hand creams, and lipsticks are a few examples of items that fall under this category.

Food may be brought onboard by every passenger in their carry-on bag. It is possible to bring drinks on board; however, they must purchase them after passing through the security gate to comply with the rules on liquids in hand luggage.

Remember the rules for holding luggage.

Three hold bags under 15 kilos, 23 kilograms, or 32 kilograms are the weight limits for each passenger. Hold baggage costs may apply depending on the route, flight, and booking timeframe.

The charge per bag weighs 6.99 to 34.99 pounds when ordered online, and it is £9.49 to 37.49 for bags weighing more than 15 kilograms and more than 23 kilograms. Baggage weighing more than 23 kilograms and up to 32 kilograms will cost an additional £12 for every 3 kilograms.

Only the less expensive 15-kg or smaller bag is available for check-in, and it costs less. If you wait until you get to the terminal to pay for your luggage, you will be charged £40 at the bag-drop counter or £50 at the boarding gate for a bag weighing up to 23 kilograms.

Accessing EasyJet's Hands-Free service is the last choice. It entails checking your handbag at the baggage carousel, enabling you to move through the airport and security checks without dragging a suitcase behind you. According to reports, the bags are the first to leave the baggage carousel. It costs £7 per individual to use this service, or £16 for a family or group of three to six people. Excessive weight can only be acquired online in 3-kilogram increments, either at the time of booking or afterward.

The Final Word

EasyJet is a budget-friendly airline that usually flies passengers with a pleasant experience and gets them where they need to go on schedule.

EasyJet does not offer a particularly significant or straightforward experience for a person who is unfamiliar with European low-cost airlines. If you are traveling with a low-cost airline for the first time in Europe, be careful to watch out for any additional fees or rigid baggage policies, and you should be alright. But those who don't make their inquiry will probably be dissatisfied.

A: It is not necessary to pay any additional charge for hand luggage as long as the bag's dimensions do not exceed 45cm x 36cm x 20cm , and the size of the overhead compartment bag does not exceed 56cm x 45cm x 25cm .

Jet2, Ryanair, easyJet, TUI and BA passengers boost as UK airports set to axe 100ml rule on liquids in hand luggage

The new 3D baggage screening equipment is being tested at Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham

Passengers flying with Jet2, Ryanair, easyJet, TUI, BA and other airlines will soon no longer be banned from having liquids over 100ml in their hand luggage.

UK airports are set to ditch the ban by 2024 along with the requirement for passengers to remove laptops from their bags. According to reports, this is due to the rollout of new 3D scanners.

Since November 2006, passengers taking liquid in their cabin luggage have been restricted to clear plastic bags holding no more than 100ml, which must be shown to security staff. They are considered to be the biggest cause of delays at airport security and the forthcoming changes have been described as a "a game-changer" by insiders

The Times reports ministers have been reviewing a trial at Heathrow Airport, which began in 2017, of 3D scanners already in use at US airports that allow staff to zoom in on a bag’s contents and rotate the images for inspection. The BBC added that security restrictions for liquids and laptops in carry-on luggage could be axed from mid-2024.

Heathrow’s chief executive, John Holland-Kaye, told The Times: “We are slowly rolling them out. We have just started the expansion of the security area in Terminal 3 which will have more CT scanners and have a deadline of mid-2024 from the [Department for Transport].

“By then the normal passenger experience will be that liquids stay in bags.”

The Times said those failing to remove items from their bags or travelling with large bottles of liquids is the biggest cause of delays at airport security. Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced plans in 2019 for all major UK airports to introduce new 3D cabin baggage screening equipment.

Government officials said at the time that once in place, the 100ml liquid limit may no longer apply. The equipment was to be rolled out over the next several years, with the Department for Transport requiring all major UK airports to have the technology by December 1 2022.

But that deadline was affected by the pandemic, with passenger numbers dented due to travel restrictions in place across much of the globe. Figures from the International Air Transport Association for September showed passenger traffic levels have only reached 73% of pre-Covid levels.
