EasyJet, Ryanair, Jet2, and BA all have tight hand baggage regulations on flights to Spain and other locations.
The summer is almost approaching, and millions of people plan their first international vacation in a few years. Still, with costs rising, more and more travellers choose the less expensive option of merely carrying carry-on luggage rather than checking in a large suitcase.
Therefore, it is critical to understand the restrictions, and prominent airlines such as Ryanair, British Airways, Jet2, and EasyJet all have rigorous policies about what you can bring and what cannot bring in your hand luggage. It may be a costly error; they will be seized if forbidden things are discovered during the airport security check.
Drinks, perfumes, and liquid cosmetics must be under 100ml and carried in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag measuring no more than 20cmx 20cm. With TUI announcing that passengers must now bring their snacks onboard short-haul flights, it's important to remember that drinks, perfumes, and liquid cosmetics must be under 100ml and carried in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag measuring no more than 20cmx 20. The total amount of liquid allowed per passenger is one litre.
Travelers from the United Kingdom and other non-EU nations face further restrictions. The Spanish government has repeated that Britons are not authorised to bring meat or dairy products into the country. This prohibition extends to cream-filled cakes and gelatine-based treats. Except for infant formula, all food items brought to Spain must be sealed in their original packaging.
The following items are banned from hand Luggage:
- Razor blades
- Sports bats, e.g., baseball, cricket
- Toy or replica guns, whether they are metal or plastic
- Umbrellas, unless they are foldable
- Construction tools including hammers, nails, and screwdrivers
- Catapults and sling-shots
- Any kind of explosives
- Gas cartridges and cartridge refills and lighter fuel – one disposable lighter is permitted per passenger, and it should be placed in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag
- Pool, snooker, and billiard cues
It's worth noting that even if you check a suitcase, several of the things listed above and numerous others are not permitted to hold luggage. Furthermore, the laws differ based on the airline and the location of the journey, so it's always a good idea to double-check with your carrier before heading to the airport.
