What type of liquids can I take on the airplane?
Screening for liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) on international flights was introduced in March 2007 by the Australian Federal Government. Knowing what’s allowed and what’s not allowed before you arrive could save you, and other passengers, time and inconvenience. Any LAG item you wish to take into the lounge or within the cabin of an aircraft must be in an adequate container; however containers cannot be over 100ml. There is more information available in our Departures Guide.
