If you’re flying out to Australia after the 30th of March this year you’ll need to be aware of a number of new enhanced security procedures the Australian Government has introduced.
From 31 March 2007, the Australian Government will introduce enhanced security screening measures to limit the amount of liquids, aerosols, and gels that can be taken through the security screening point for passengers who are flying to and from Australia.
Liquids, aerosols and gels include, but are not limited to:
pastes including toothpaste;
Carry on Baggage Restrictions
All containers must fit comfortably in a transparent, resealable plastic bag.
Medication and Baby Products
Prescription medication and prescribed medical devices may still be carried on board. Reasonable amounts of non-prescription medication required for the length of the flight are permitted.
Baby products to be consumed in-flight including baby milk, sterilised water, baby juice, baby food in liquid, gel or paste form and wet wipes may be carried on board. All medication and baby products may be subject to additional security checks.
