Each unit of packaging may be a maximum of 100ml (1dl) of liquid. All packaging must fit into a transparent one (1) litre plastic zip-lock bag. Each passenger may have one bag. Packaging refers to bottles, tubes, canisters and other containers that can contain a liquid.

All medication in liquid form must be removed from the bag before the bag goes through the x-ray machine.
