Information for Passengers on Dangerous Goods
The following information is taken from the current edition of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air.
Current UK aviation security regulations forbid the carriage of liquids (including aerosols and gels) in hand baggage through the passenger security point in containers larger than 100ml. Larger containers may be placed in hold baggage or purchased after the security point, provided they comply with the dangerous goods limits in the table below.
Restrictions implemented by other countries in the interests of aviation security may further limit or forbid the carriage of some of the items listed in these pages. Additionally, airlines and security screening agencies have the right to refuse the carriage of certain items.
Passengers must contact their airline in advance for clarification of the regulations or when planning to travel with dangerous goods that require the airline's approval as indicated.
