AIR travel can be stressful, particular if you don't know what liquid you can take onto a plane.

Here is how you can avoid getting into trouble with security.

How much liquid can you take on a plane?

You are only allowed to take containers that have no more than 100ml of liquid with you in your hand luggage.

Larger quantities of liquid will have to be packed in your suitcase and checked into the plane.

Liquids in your hand luggage must be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag that measures 20cm by 20cm and is offered by most airports.

You are allowed one plastic bag per person, which must be easily sealed and shown to airport staff who reserve the right to confiscate any liquids that are over 100ml.

What counts as a liquid?

According to the government website, the term 'liquid' extends to:

  • 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

You can only carry one lighter onboard which should be put inside a resealable plastic bag and must be kept on you throughout the flight.

You cannot put it in your hold luggage.

Can you take baby milk onto a plane?

There are some exceptions to the 100ml restriction, for example, with liquids for medical purposes, special dietary requirements, or with baby food or milk.

Breast milk up to 2,000ml can be transported in hand luggage, while formula milk and sterilized water can also be taken on board.

Baby food and cooling gel packs are also allowed on board.

You can carry breast milk in hand luggage even if you're not travelling with a baby, but a baby must be present if you have formula milk, sterilized water, or baby food.

Frozen breast milk is not permitted in hand luggage, but is fine in the hold.

Many toiletries now come in solid bars rather than liquids, meaning you can get around the liquids rules.
