At Norwich Airport, we make the Safety and Security of customers and staff our highest priority. To make your journey as smooth as possible and to avoid unnecessary delays, we ask that you pay special attention to our security procedures.
At the Airport
To ensure that your journey is a smooth one, please ensure that you read the latest regulations about what you can and cannot take on board the aircraft.
At this time Norwich Airport operates a one piece of hand-baggage per person rule. Exceptions do apply for KLM, BMI, Eastern Airways and Flybe passengers traveling in Economy plus or Business class, please contact your airline for further details
The carriage of liquids is restricted. You are advised to pack all liquids in your hold baggage, however you are permitted to carry a small amount of liquid in your hand baggage. Each container must not exceed 100ml maximum volume. These items must be contained within a small, clear, re-sealable plastic wallet, which will be subjected to additional security screening at the security control point.
The new rules stipulate that the plastic wallet must not exceed one litre capacity per passenger – that’s around half the size of a standard A4 piece of paper and must be sealable. The wallet must not be cluttered to allow security officers to carry out thorough checks.
Incorrectly packaged fluids will be confiscated
Examples of Liquids include:
Water and other drinks, soups, syrups
Creams, lotions and oils
Gels, including hair and shower
Contents of pressurised containers, including shaving foam and deodorants
Pastes, including toothpaste
Any other similar consistency
Large Electrical Items / Laptops
Laptops and other complex items of electrical equipment have to be removed from hand baggage and screened separately.
What has not changed
You will still be allowed to pack liquids into luggage that you check-in. Passengers will also be allowed to carry in their luggage medicines and dietary requirements including baby foods, for use during the flight.
You may be asked for proof that these items are needed. Parents will be asked to sample baby milk and food and also those with dietary requirements. These also need to be in containers of 100ml or less. Passengers will be able to buy liquids including drinks and perfumes after they have passed through the security control point.
