Dispose of liquids in containers of more than 100 ml in the bins provided (exceptions: liquid medication, baby food and special foods that you require for the journey). Liquid duty-free items of over 100 ml with a purchase receipt in a sealed bag in accordance with the ICAO standard are permitted. Permitted liquids will be subjected to an additional inspection. They may only be taken on board the flight if they have been approved by the security staff.
Please follow instructions from staff during the security check. The following items must be placed separately in the baggage trays:
The metal detector at the security check is not hazardous to pregnant women or their unborn babies. The regulations regarding pregnancy differ from airline to airline. Please ask your airline how late into your pregnancy you are allowed to fly and whether you require a doctor's certificate.
If you have an implant or a prosthesis made of metal, we recommend that you bring a doctor's certificate (prosthesis passport).
If you have a pacemaker, you should not pass through the metal detector, as sensitive pacemakers may be disrupted. Please tell the security staff. The electromagnetic radiation from the metal detector does not pose a health risk to healthy individuals, even those who are frequent flyers.
