Restricted items - International flights

In response to various threats - including those posed by liquid explosives - security arrangements have been reinforced. Passengers on international flights to and from Australia are only allowed to carry a small amount of liquids (including aerosols and gels) in their carry-on baggage. The restriction covers items such as drinks, creams, perfumes, sprays, gels, toothpaste and other similar substances.

Liquids are only allowed in carry-on baggage if they are in containers up to 100ml in capacity and these containers are put in a one-litre, re-sealable transparent plastic bag.

Having carry-on liquids organised in the plastic bag before arriving at the security screening point will minimise delays and disruption. The bags can be purchased at most supermarkets.

Clear  plastic bag of liquids

  1. Containers must not exceed 100ml
  2. Containers must fit comfortably within a re-sealable one-litre transparent plastic bag
  3. Only one bag per passenger 
  4. Plastic bag must measure approximately 20cm x 20cm or 15cm x 25cm

Medicines in limited quantities and alcoholic beverages may be carried in checked baggage or cabin baggage- maximum two litres or two kilos.

Exemptions

Passengers may carry on board prescription medicines where the name on the medicine matches the name on the boarding pass. Baby products and non-prescription medicines necessary for the flight are also allowed.

In addition, any person passing through an international screening point may be subject to a frisk search (this selection occurs randomly). All frisk searches are undertaken by a person of the same gender.

For more information on security measures, including the carriage of duty-free, please contact us or go to the Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government website: www.infrastructure.gov.au.
