The regulations on liquids in the plane have been tightened in recent years and the transport in the cabin of all liquid or similar substances is now strictly regulated. This is why we advise you carrying liquids in a portable travel bottle. Only keep liquids in hand luggage if they are really essential. 

How to take liquid products in your cabin baggage?

Irrespective of the airline, the restrictions on liquids in the aircraft cabin are the same whether you are flying with Delta, American, Southwest, JetBlue or any other airline. 

  • Bottles of liquids in the cabin must not have a capacity greater than 100 ml.

  • Liquids must be placed in a single completely transparent and closed bag of approximately 20x20 cm.

  • Only one bag of liquids is allowed per traveler.

  • Under no circumstances should bottles of liquids be piled up or stacked.
