Liquids - 100ml Rule

Only limited quantities of liquids may be carried through airport security into the departure lounge. This includes bottled drinks, suntan lotion, fragrances, cosmetics and toiletries.

Norwich International Airport provides plastic bags at the security screening point to assist with the preparation for LAGs screening, however we strongly recommend passengers prepare these items prior to arriving at the airport.

The following restrictions apply to all liquids, creams, gels, pastes and aerosols taken through security control:

  • Liquids may only be carried in containers holding 100ml or less. 
  • They must be carried separately in a single bag which is:
    • Transparent and resealable
    • No larger than 20cm x 20cm (8in x 8in)
    • Able to close properly with all the items inside.
  • At security control, place the bag in the tray with your other items.
  • You are permitted one LAG bag per person.
  • Liquids in containers over 100ml will not be permitted through security – please pack them in your hold baggage instead.

The following exceptions may be made to the 100ml rule, however all items will be x-rayed and must pass screening requirements in order to travel as cabin baggage;

  • Baby food or baby milk: This exception is only permitted if you are travelling with a baby or infant. Please carry only what you need for your journey and, to assist security screening, please do not carry these items in a flask. If you are not travelling with a baby or infant, excess liquids should be carried as hold luggage. 
  • Liquid medicines: You are only permitted to carry quantities of liquid medication in excess of your personal liquid allowance where it is needed during the course of your flight. All medication should be accompanied by documentary proof of authenticity, such as a prescription or letter from a medical practitioner confirming that you need them for your journey. Liquid medication that is not required on the flight should be carried as hold luggage.

Explosive or flammable liquids, and those that are considered toxic, are not permitted in either hand or hold luggage.

Please note

Passengers will be able to buy LAGs including drinks and perfumes after they have passed through the security control point.
