Passenger Warning

In order to protect air traffic passengers, in the year 2006 EU introduces a limit concerning amount of liquids allowed to be carried in hand baggage. These protective measures are applied at all EU, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland airports, and are also mandatory at the Croatian airports.
The liquids include: beverages, oils, perfumes, lotions, gels, mixtures of liquid and solid contents, containers under pressure such as shaving foams, gels, deodorants, perfumes and other items of similar content.

Only liquids in individual packages of up to 100 ml or 100 g volume, put in transparent resealable plastic bag, may be carried inside hand baggage. Maximal bag volume is 1 litre. Bag must be completely closed (see picture).





Passengers are still allowed to:


  • carry above mentioned liquids if they are packed in hold baggage. New regulations apply to hand baggage only,
  • carry in hand baggage liquids which might be needed for medical purposes during flight, or for special nutritional needs, including baby food. At request of person in charge, passenger shall prove the need to use them.
  • In the case of direct flight from any EU airport to Croatian destination, or the flight with transit at some other EU airport, liquids (drinks, perfumes…) which have been bought in shops behind boarding pass control and / or security check, may be carried on board. Those liquids must be put in transparent platic bag (STEB). In the year 2008, EK 820/2008 Regulation came into force, according to which passengers flying from Croatia and with transit at some EU and Switzerland airport, again are allowed to carry liquids into aircrafts, provided that they are bought in airport Duty Free Shops, after security check and boarding pass control. This Regulation refers to Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Rijeka, Pula and Zagreb airports. Stated permission is valid for goods purchased within 36 hours of transfer and packed in transparent plastic bag (STEB). Bag must be sealed, so that any attempt to open it and affect its content must be visible.



Passenger and Hand Baggage Security Check


At passenger and hand baggage security check, the passenger is required to:


  • report all liquids;
  • separately present laptops and other electronic devices (mp3 players, mobile phones etc.);
  • take off coat and / or jacket that will be checked as a separate piece of hand baggage.
