Issues concerning taking liquid articles on international and regional flights

1. Each liquid article should not exceed 100 ml. When the container of the liquid article exceeds 100 ml, it is prohibited to be included in the carry-on, and has to be freighted in the check-in Baggage, no matter whether the liquid contained reaches 100 ml or not. For domestic flights, alcohol drinks are not allowed to be taken as a carry-on, but can be included in the check-in Baggage. Give heed to the following tips when taking a flight:

It is suggested that the liquid articles not to be used during the flight be included in the check-in Baggage.

Please put the alcohol articles, if any, in the check-in Baggage.

If the container of your liquid article exceeds 100 ml, do change it into one smaller than 100 ml, or include it in the check-in Baggage.

2. Liquid containers should be placed within a transparent bag that can be resealed and is no larger than 1L. Each passenger is allowed to carry only one such bag; any excess has to be included in the check-in Baggage. Heed also should be given to the following details:

The bag is suggested to be as large as 20 cm×20 cm.

Each passenger can carry only one such plastic bag as is mentioned above; any excessive bag containing liquid article must be included in the check-in Baggage.

Generally speaking, a 1 L plastic bag is sufficient to hold five 100 ml containers. It is not advisable to crowd too many containers within one bag.

3. The transparent plastic bag holding liquid articles should be subject to independent security inspection. It is expected that passengers take the plastic bag out of the carry-on, and handover it for security inspection.

4. The articles bought in the duty-free shops in the waiting building or on the plane should be placed in a transparent plastic bag which is not to be unsealed. Passengers are required to keep the shopping voucher for possible inspection. Those buying duty-free liquid articles should give heed to the following tips:

Transfer passengers should not open such a sealed plastic bag that contains duty-free liquid articles; otherwise it may be refused to board the next flight.

Please keep the shopping voucher well; otherwise it may be refused from boarding the next flight.

When buying duty-free liquid articles, inform the salesman with the stopover and destination of your flight; consult him/her about regulations on carrying liquid articles on the flights of the country/region where the stopover and destination are located.

5. Passengers who travel with a baby and sufferers of diabetes or other diseases may take dairy products and the necessary liquid medicine in an appropriate amount (just enough for usage during the flight). And such dairy products or medicine must be subject to security inspection.

6. Passengers having any liquid articles that are out of the above cases and are indefinable should put them in the check-in Baggage.
