Are you unsure of the airport check-in rules? Check them out in advance to know which items can be packaged in the cabin baggage, and what, in turn, needs to be carried in the luggage compartment of the aircraft. Here are some practical tips and tricks to help you make decisions.
Can I take my own food and drink on the plane?
You can take a small snack on board an airplane, such as biscuits or sandwiched bread (but it must be wrapped in plastic film). Liquids are only allowed in a bottle of 100 ml. However, it does not only concern soft drinks or water, but honey and marmalade are also considered liquids. All liquids must then be placed in a resealable bag of up to one liter.
Where can I put the powerbank and other electronics?
Take all electronics, such as a mobile phone, a powerbank, a camera, a shaver or a laptop with you on board, because they do not belong to the checked baggage. Devices with a maximum battery life of 100 Wh are permitted. Batteries from 100 to 160 Wh must be approved by the airline and batteries over 160 Wh are completely forbidden for air passengers. When performing security checks, put all electronic devices in a separate crate.
How to transport electronic cigarettes?
You can only carry an electronic cigarette in a cabin bag that you carry with you on board an aircraft. Replacement cartridges for the electronic cigarette are subject to the same limitations as liquids, so you can board with a package with a maximum volume of 100 ml.
May I take my favorite cosmetics on board?
As far as cosmetics are concerned, they are considered liquids for safety control. All creams, deodorants, and mascaras are allowed on board in packs of up to 100 ml. The cosmetics must be placed in a transparent, resealable bag of up to one liter and placed on the control belt outside the hand luggage.
How to transport medications?
Pack your medicines in the checked baggage, and take only the medication necessary for the journey. Drops, syrups, and sprays are allowed in quantities greater than 100 ml but put them in a crate outside your bag when checked. It is also good to have a medical certificate with you in Czech and English to prove that you are actually taking the medicine. If you are in a wheelchair, you can hand it over just before you leave for loading into the aircraft cargo bay. The same applies to baby carriages. For the security check to run smoothly, you should always be able to check it in time and inform the security officer in advance of all your specific needs.
