Hold baggage

Pack well and be happy

Hold baggage guidance

We advise you to put all you can in your hold baggage - that's the bags you check-in. You’ll have less to carry through the terminal and passing through security should be quicker and easier. 

Make sure all your large toiletries, shampoo, deodorant, make up and perfumes etc. over 100ml are packed into your hold luggage 

There are several items that you are allowed to carry in hold luggage that you are not allowed to carry onboard with you in your hand luggage. These include:

  • Liquids, creams, gels and pastes in containers over 100ml
  • Scissors - only scissors with less than 6cm long with rounded ends are allowed in hand baggage
  • Razor blades - razors that have the blade set into a plastic molding are allowed in hand baggage, but other types are not
  • Knives with blades of any length
  • Household cutlery - small teaspoons are allowed in hand baggage
  • Hypodermic needles - unless required for medical reasons, for which proof will be required
  • Tools - including multi-tools and penknives
  • Catapults
  • Walking/hiking poles - unless required as a walking aid
  • Toy/replica guns - metal or plastic
  • Sporting bats
