    Guide to the new rules for carry-on/hand baggage in European airports (EU+ Switzerland, Norway,...) from the 6th Nov. 2006

    Liquids and liquid substances in your carry-on baggage must be packed in containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml (1/10 litre)

    You may pack more than one container, but no more than you can fit into a one-litre plastic bag

    Authorities specify that the bag must be a ‘transparent, re-sealable bag with a maximum capacity of one litre. The closing mechanism must be an integral part of the bag. You may for instance use re-sealable “freezer bags”, available from many major supermarkets.’

    Get hold of a bag that meets the authorities’ requirements – and pack your liquid containers in this

    At the airport, help is at hand

    At the airport, signs, information flyers and airport staff will remind you of the new rules

    In the initial period, bags will be available at the airport free of charge, but please regard this as an option of last resort; the more passengers packing correctly before they leave home, the quicker passengers will be able to pass through security.

    Be prepared at the security checkpoint

    Have your bag of liquids ready for separate x-raying at the security checkpoint

    Remove computers and other large electrical items from your carry-on baggage – such items must be x-rayed separately

    Remove your coat at the security checkpoint. It too must be x-rayed separately

    Duty-free: you can buy tax-free goods at the airport as usual

    You can buy goods as usual beyond the security checkpoint

    Articles bought at the airport beyond the security checkpoints (including spirits, perfume and other liquids) are exempt from the new rules

    You can buy tax-free goods at the airport as usual, but please be aware that your will receive your goods in a sealed bag, which must remain sealed until your final destination

    For passengers in transit from non European countries, items bought in duty-free might be confiscated as it is difficult to trace their origin.

    Since the 9/11 terrorist attack every rules in the airport like what you have mentioned here have tremendously changed. It is sometimes inconvenient for passengers but, I guess this is for the good of everyone. Nice information you just shared!
