Passengers arriving from outside the EU and transferring onto a connecting flight continue to be required to carry duty-free liquids exceeding 100 millilitres in the hold of the aircraft. Liquid containers of 100 millilitres or less can be carried in hand luggage.
The EU had earlier decided that from 29 April onwards, passengers arriving from outside the Union and transferring onto a connecting flight could take duty-free liquids onto their connecting flight as hand luggage after security check. On 29 April the Commission has advised the Member States to defer the removal of duty-free liquid restrictions.
