Restricted items

We keep you safe!

Cabin Luggage

For safety reasons, some items are strictly forbidden as cabin luggage:

 

- guns, firearms and other devices that discharge projectiles (any device capable, or that appears capable, of causing serious injury by discharging a projectile)

- stunning devices specifically designed to stun or immobilise

- objects with a sharp point or sharp edge capable of being used to cause serious injury

- workmen’s tools capable of being used to cause serious injury or to threaten the safety of the aircraft

- blunt instruments capable of being used to cause serious injury

- explosives, incendiary substances and devices capable of being used to cause serious injury or to threaten the safety of the aircraft

- liquids, aerosols and gels (for small quantities of liquid, see the “liquids” section above)

- electric and hybrid means of transport (electric bikes, hoverboards, airwheels, segways)

  • Electronic cigarettes

    For safety reasons, electronic cigarettes are not allowed in hold luggage. You can carry them in your cabin luggage, but can’t use them on Luxair flights.

  • Lithium batteries

    Any electrical devices containing lithium batteries are a fire risk, covered by IATA rules on the transport of dangerous goods. To find out whether lithium batteries and devices containing them are allowed in your luggage, see the “Lithium batteries” section below.

  • EU regulation on the transport of liquids in cabin luggage [regulation (EC) no. 1546/2006]

    From 6 November 2006, the new EU regulation on the transport of liquids in cabin luggage applies to all flights departing from an EU airport, whatever the destination and nationality of the airline.
    Since its entry into effect, liquids in cabin luggage must be put into individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 millilitres each. These containers must be placed in a resealable, transparent plastic bag of not more than 1 litre (e.g. a freezer bag) and must be presented to the security personnel for inspection. ‘Resealable bag’ means that the passenger can close it securely and that the security personnel can open it to check its contents. It can be a bag that closes by press-seal or by zip (‘Ziploc’-type bag).
    The regulation provides for exceptions for medicines and products for special dietary needs, in particular baby food which must be used during the journey. The quantity of essential medicines varies depending on the length of the journey and the person concerned and may, for this reason, exceed 100 millilitres.
    The following are considered to be liquids under the new regulation: water and other drinks, soups, syrups, perfumes, gels (including hair gel and shower gel), pastes (including toothpaste), creams, lotions and oils, sprays, the contents of pressurised containers (shaving foam, deodorants, etc.), liquid/solid mixtures and other substances of a similar consistency.
    The rules that apply to the transport of liquids in checked luggage remain unchanged.
    Liquids purchased in retail outlets located after the point where boarding passes are checked will be placed in a sealed bag. These liquids are not subject to the above limits of quantity. However, passengers in transit to another EU airport must take care to keep these purchases in the sealed bag and to keep the proof of purchase, as they will be subject to control.
    Important clarification on the limits for liquids on board aircraft as regards medicines and products for special dietary needs
    In light of a number of complaints made by diabetics who were asked by certain airlines and certain airports to limit the volume of insulin in their cabin luggage, the AEA (Association of European Airlines) authorities would like to provide clarification to avoid an overly strict application of the new regulation to patients such as diabetics.
    The rules allow passengers to carry with them any medication and special dietary products they need during their journey. The ‘journey’ means the outbound flight, time spent at the destination, and return flight. The meaning is therefore different from the term ‘flight’.

- spare lithium batteries (only in cabin luggage)

  • Electronic cigarettes

    Electronic cigarettes are a fire risk and are not allowed in hold luggage.

     

  • Lithium batteries

    Any electrical devices containing lithium batteries are a fire risk, covered by IATA rules on the transport of dangerous goods. To find out whether lithium batteries and devices containing them are allowed in your luggage, see the “Lithium batteries” section below.

  • Firearms and ammunition

    Firearms and ammunition for sports and hunting must go in the hold. They are carried at your own responsibility, and only under the following conditions:

     

    • carried only in the hold, not the cabin
    • declared when you book and check in
    • empty, disassembled and packaged securely
    • documentation is complete and up-to-date (holder’s license, authority to carry firearms and all the import and/or export licenses required for the relevant countries)
    • firearms and ammunition containing explosive projectiles must not be placed in checked hold luggage
    • no more than 5 kg of ammunition per passenger
    • small-calibre ammunition only, in a wooden, metal or fibre container in which the cartridges can’t move or knock together
  • Liquids

    The following are considered as liquids:

     

    • water and other drinks
    • soups
    • syrups
    • perfumes
    • gels (including hair gels and shower gels)
    • pastes (including toothpaste)
    • creams
    • lotions and oils
    • sprays
    • products in pressurised containers (shaving foam, deodorant, etc.)
    • liquid/solid mixtures and other substances of similar consistency

     

    For safety and security reasons, liquids can only be taken into the security restricted area and into the cabin if they are in individual containers of no more than 100 ml placed in a transparent, reclosable plastic bag with maximum capacity of 1 litre (like a freezer bag). This bag must be shown to the security personnel for inspection. You must be able to close the bag securely and the security personnel must be able to open it to check its contents. Press-seal or “Ziploc” type bags are suitable.

     

    Certain liquids are allowed in the cabin without restriction, under certain conditions:

     

    • liquids to be used during the journey for medical reasons, or special dietary products (like baby food). You must be able to prove what the liquid is
    • liquids obtained airside beyond the point where boarding passes are controlled, from outlets that are subject to approved security procedures as part of the airport security programme, on condition that the liquid is packed in a bag that is both tamper-evident and visibly displays satisfactory proof of purchase at that airport, on that day
    • liquids obtained in the security restricted area from outlets that are subject to approved security procedures as part of the airport security programme; liquids obtained at another EU airport, on condition that the liquid is packed in a bag that is both tamper-evident and visibly displays satisfactory proof of purchase airside at that airport on that day
    • liquids obtained on board an aircraft of an EU air carrier, on condition that the liquid is packed in a bag that is both tamper-evident and visibly displays satisfactory proof of purchase on board that aircraft on that day.
    • Liquids purchased in duty-free shops at non-EU airports or on non-EU or non-EFTA flights are not allowed in the cabin, even if they are in a transparent, sealed bag.
  • Lithium batteries

    To find out whether lithium batteries and devices containing them are allowed in your luggage, check their wattage and configuration:

     

    • Lithium batteries of less than 100 Wh: mobile phones, laptops, tablets, drones, cameras, mp3 players, etc., containing these must go in cabin luggage.
    • Lithium batteries of 100 Wh to 160 Wh: you must contact Luxair for permission to carry these (e.g., in video cameras and automatic external defibrillators).
    • Lithium batteries of more than 160 Wh: not allowed in any luggage (e.g., in electric and hybrid bikes, hoverboards, airwheels, small segways, etc.).
    • Spare batteries with exposed terminals are not permitted in checked luggage. In cabin luggage, they must be protected from short circuits (terminals covered with sticky tape, and carried in individual plastic bags or in their original packaging). Spare batteries of less than 100 Wh must only be for personal use, and only two spare batteries of 100 to 160 Wh are allowed per person.
