Hand Luggage

In most cases, all passengers - except for children under 2 years of age - can carry one piece of hand luggage during their flight. Your airline will provide you with more details about the maximum size and weight allowed.


The following items are prohibited: sharp objects (knives, including some penknives, scissors, etc.), liquids and cosmetics if their volume exceeds 100ml, blunt instruments, weapons (even a collector's piece or a toy), etc.           

If these objects are found during the security check, they must be handed to a non-travelling friend or associate, or confiscated for destruction.
