While restrictions apply for the carriage of liquids and gels in hand luggage, exceptions are made for medications and special food (e.g., baby food and diet foods) that you may need during the flight. These articles may be carried outside the re-sealable plastic bag (see Luggage Regulations), but they must be separately inspected at the security check. In cases of doubt, our security staff may require you to prove that you require these products during the flight, so it is a good idea to have a doctors’ prescription with you if applicable.
