SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR PASSENGERS AND CABIN BAGGAGE

Passengers and their cabin baggage shall be inspected to prevent the introduction of prohibited articles into restricted areas and on board the aircraft, as well as for the amount of carried liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs).

 

The term LAG includes the following articles:

  •  liquid beverages(including water) and liquid foods such as soups, lyutenitsa, honey, syrups, etc.
  •  creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascaras and other types of liquid and semi-liquid make-up;
  • various sprays or pressurized containers such as deodorants and shaving foam
  • pastes, including toothpaste
  • gels, shower gels, shampoos
  • liquid or semi-liquid detergents, including soaps
  • all other solutions and products of similar consistency

 

The categories of LAGs permitted to carry in cabin baggage are as follows:

  • LAGs in containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml, fitting comfortably in transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of no more than one litre capacity when it is fully closed. The restriction is related to the container – it must be with a maximum capacity of 100 ml, irrespective of the amount of LAGs in it. Each passenger may carry only one plastic bag in cabin baggage.
  • LAGs in containers larger than 100 ml: medicines and dietary foods intended for intake during the trip due to health reasons or due to a special diet. You may be asked to document their necessity and origin;
  • Baby foods intended for intake during the trip;
  • LAGs (beverages, perfumes, etc.) purchased from the areas of the airports in which security measures are applied (shops located after the checkpoints), as well as those purchased on board the aircraft. Upon purchase, these products are packed and sealed in a tamper-evident bag (STEB). This condition also applies to all security checks that transferred passengers go through. Otherwise, the contents of the bag may not be allowed by the airport security authorities.

All other LAGs are not allowed to be carried in cabin baggage and can be placed in checked baggage.

 

During security check of passengers and hand luggage, security officers will require passengers:

  • to present separately for examination all liquids, aerosols and gels carried in hand luggage;
  • to remove laptops and other electronic devices from their hand luggage to be screened separately;
