You may take limited quantities of liquids, gels and aerosols in their cabin bag including travel-size toiletries. Please be familiar with the following liquid/gel carry-on baggage restrictions.
Only the following liquids/gels are allowed in passenger hand luggage
- Small quantities of liquids permitted in hand luggage provided they are submitted separately for inspection at security check points.
- These liquids must be in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100ml each. The containers must be packed in one transparent re-sealable plastic bag that is equivalent to 1ltr (34 fl oz) capacity per passenger. All liquids, gels and aerosols in containers larger than the above must be packed in checked baggage.
- Baby formula, breast milk, or juice if a baby or small child is travelling.

For international passengers connecting in the United States, duty free purchased liquids/gels/aerosols measuring 3.4 oz. or less may be brought on board after clearing customs only if the item is placed in a quart-size, clear plastic carry-on zip-top bag. Otherwise, these items will be confiscated.
