Additional security measures on UK and US flights. PDF Print E-mail

Additional cabin baggage restrictions and security controls apply for all flights from Great Britain to Germany as well as for all flights to and from the United States.

We recommends that passengers reduce their carry-on luggage to a minimum and arrive early at the airport.


At the instruction of US authorities since August 10, passengers are not allowed to bring liquids or gels of any size aboard aircraft in their carry-on luggage. This includes

- beverages
- shampoo
- suntan lotion
- creams
- parfum
- toothpaste
- hair gel
- other liquids of similar consistency

Passengers are still allowed to have the following items in their carry-on luggage:

- electronic equipment including mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players and laptops
- baby formula, breast milk or juice (if a baby or infant travels in their company)
- essential medicine if the name marked on the medicine / prescription matches the name on the ticket.

These regulations apply to all flights to the USA with immediate effect. The items listed above must be stored in passengers’ baggage ahead of travel and checked in.


Following rules apply for all passengers traveling from and via the UK.

On August 14th the British Government has announced that the security threat level across the UK has been changed from critical to severe, with new guidelines in place.

Passengers may now take one piece of cabin baggage with them. This piece must not exceed the following dimensions:

45 x 35 x 16 cm

(former approved size of cabin baggage: 55 x 40 x 20 cm.)

The bag must not contain:

- any liquids
- cosmetics or toiletries, including gels, pastes, lotions, liquid/solid mixtures, perfumes and the contents of pressurised containers - these must be checked in as hold baggage
- cigarette lighters are not permitted in hold baggage or through the security search. These may be purchased airside.

The bag can include:

- electronic equipment including mobile phones, digital cameras and MP3 players
- laptops and large electronic equipment (e.g. large hair dryer) may be carried in cabin baggage, but must be removed for x-ray controls
- prescription medicines in liquid form if needed during the flight, eg diabetic kit
- baby milk and liquid baby food (the contents of each bottle must be tasted by the accompanying passenger)
