Safety Measures for Flights to the United States

Safety Measures for Flights to the United States

Restrictions on Liquids, Gels and Aerosols

In accordance with international regulations, passengers are allowed to take into the passenger cabin: their carry-on with their personal hygiene items in liquid, cream, gel, aerosol or mousse form, provided that each individual container (jar or bottle) does not exceed a 100 ml./3.4 oz., and that all such items are placed in a single 19 X 20 cm. (7.5 X 8 inch), clear plastic, zip-top bag, in order to allow easy screening by authorities.

Other permitted items include: juice, baby formula and breast milk (only if infants are traveling too), prescribed medications such as insulin for diabetics (evidence of the medical condition must be provided), and over-the-counter medications in containers not exceeding a maximum size of 100 ml./3.4 oz., including saline solutions for eye care.

In accordance with official regulations, liquids, gels and aerosols bought at the Duty Free shops at the airport shall be delivered to the passengers as they board the airplane, immediately after their personal screening and the screening of their carry-on. In the case of a passenger with a connecting flight within the United States or Canada, items bought at the Duty Free shops may be placed in their checked luggage to avoid having them seized. Items bought on board will be delivered in tamper-evident bags, which should be kept closed until they reach their final destination.
