To the Attention of Air Passengers

 Untitled Document To the Attention of All Passengers Departing from or Transferring through European Union (EU) Airports

As of November 6, 2006 new security measures came into effect for all passengers departing or transferring from member states of the European Union airports as well as Albania, Kosovo, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.

Liquids
Passengers may carry small quantities of liquids, but only within separate containers each of which with a capacity not greater than 100 ml.

All liquid containers must be carried in a separate clear plastic, zip-top or re-sealable bag that does not exceed 20 cm x 20cm (8 inches x 8 inches) or equivalent to one litre capacity. The contents of the plastic bag must fit comfortably and the bag sealed. Each passenger may carry only one such bag of liquids.

The bag must be presented for examination at the airport security point.

Liquids that cannot be placed inside the re-sealable bag must be packed into the hold luggage and checked in. Liquids of any amount can still be carried in luggage checked into the aircraft hold.

Remember that 'Liquids' include:
All drinks, including water, soup, syrups
Creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascara and lip gloss etc
Sprays and pressurized containers including shaving foam and spray deodorants
Pastes, including toothpastes
Gels, including hair and shower gel
Any other solutions and items of similar consistency

Medicines
Essential medicines and baby food may be permitted in larger quantities above the 100 ml limit, but will be subject to the authentication that is already currently required.

Cabin baggage and size allowed: Each passenger is restricted to carry only one item (in addition to the re-sealable liquids bag) through the airport search point.(maximum cabin baggage size 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm. for UK ).

Pushchairs, walking aids and wheelchairs are permitted but will be screened.

Laptops / electrical items
Laptops and other large electrical items (e.g. a large hairdryer) will still have to be removed from cabin baggage and screened separately. A laptop bag will be regarded as your one item that is allowed in the cabin.

Outsize items
All items of luggage which do not fit in the permitted cabin baggage size must be checked in to be placed in the aircraft hold. Musical instruments will, as an exception, be allowed as a second item of cabin baggage, but will need to be screened and passengers should check with their airlines if special arrangements (e.g. purchasing an extra seat) for these large instruments will be required.

Before you arrive at the airport
-Limit quantities to what you may need in the cabin for the duration of the flight.
-When possible, put liquids in hold baggage.
-Prepare the re-sealable bag of liquids before arriving at the airport.
-Check any queries you have with your airport or airline before traveling to the airport

At the security point
-Be ready to hand over your re-sealable bag of liquids for screening as you approach the security check point. It will be screened at the same time as your cabin luggage.
-All coats and jackets will have to be removed ready to be screened and metal items including wallets will be placed in plastic trays and scanned separately.
-If you are carrying a Laptop or any other large electrical item within your cabin luggage then please have it ready for separate screening as you approach the security check.

Duty free / departure lounge purchases
-You may take on board liquid items of any size that are purchased after the security check in the Departure lounge (sometimes referred to as 'Airside').
-Most duty free or similar purchases will be given to you in a special sealed bag. Do not open this bag until you have reached your final destination. You should also retain your proof of purchase throughout your journey. You will be required to show it at all transfer points.
-If you are departing from a non-EU airport and transferring through an EU airport, any duty-free item purchased from non-EU airport will not be accepted on your transfer flight.

The member states of the European Union are:
Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.

The above information was taken from the website of Turkish Airlines. For latest amendments and details please check with related airline company.
