Exceptions for Liquids, Aerosols and Gels
The following are allowed in your carry-on without a bag and in containers over 100 ml:
- If traveling with an infant under two years of age (0-24 months), baby food, milk, formula, water and juice in small containers for your itinerary. Gel or ice packs are also permitted.
- Passengers flying with or without their child will be permitted to bring breast milk in quantities greater than 100 ml provided it is presented to the Screening Officer for inspection prior to screening. Gel or ice packs are also permitted.
- Prescription and essential non-prescription medicines.
- Gel and ice packs are exempt from the restrictions on liquids when required to treat an injury or when used to refrigerate baby food, milk, breast milk, formula, water and juice for infants under 2 years of age (0-24 months), medically necessary items and medication.
- Insulin, juice, gels and other medically necessary items for diabetics
- Canned or jarred goods containing both solids and liquid that clearly contain less than 100 ml of liquid (e.g., can of tuna).
The above items, although allowed in your carry-on, are still subject to security screening. The items must be removed from carry-on baggage and placed directly into a bin at the entrance of the checkpoint, as additional screening may be required.
Documentation to support your medical needs or condition is not required; however, if you feel that it would help ease your screening, it should be presented to the screening officer along with your medically necessary items.
