Dangerous Goods that Must Not be Taken Onboard
The following items must not be taken on board (in carry-on or checked baggage).
- Knives, sharp objects or equipment for the cutting of either metal or other materials, or sports equipment must not be taken on board. Passengers are required to load them in the checked baggage. Passengers carrying syringes will need to present them to the officer at Security Checkpoint. It is recommended (not required) that passengers bring along any supporting documentation (ID cards, letter from doctor, etc.) regarding their medication needs.
- Other objects that are listed in the itinerary or receipt are prohibited goods on board the aircraft.
For people who frequently travel out of the country or the province, you will need to know the restrictions on the amount of liquids you can take on board.
The liquids include water, jam, honey, sauce, yogurt, soup, curry, assorted toiletries including gels, hair Toothpaste oil cream, lotion, lipstick. medicine and perfume, etc., except medicine, milk, and food for babies. Passengers are permitted to carry the liquids in containers with capacity not greater than 100 ml. However, passengers are required to present it to the officer at the Checkpoint.
Passengers who carry liquids on board (in reasonable quantities) must put their liquids in a Container. Container must be placed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag of a maximum capacity of one litre. Otherwise, passengers are required to surrender liquid items you are carrying before boarding your flight. To avoid this, passengers may load liquid items with your checked baggage.
This includes duty free liquids, aerosols and gels such as alcohol, perfume or cosmetics. Passengers are allowed to carry those items on board. However, items purchased either at airport duty free shops or on board the aircraft must be packed in a sealed plastic bag, have not been opened, and display satisfactory proof of purchase. If the seal is broken, passengers will need to change for a new plastic bag.
Please note that a limitation of liquids carrying on board might be different for each airport. The best way is to ask the sales clerk before buying goods at the duty free shop. This would help passengers to ensure that the items are not prohibited at the airport terminal.
