What regulations apply for carrying liquids in hand luggage at Eurowings?
In addition to all other hand luggage regulations, the following regulations regarding carrying liquids on aeroplanes apply for all departures within the EU and in several other countries, including Switzerland, Russia, Iceland, Croatia, Israel, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Norway:
- All liquids (such as cosmetics and toiletries, gels, pastes, creams, lotions, mixtures of liquids and solids, perfumes, pressurised containers, cans or water bottles) and wax and gel-like products may only be carried on board in containers holding up to 100 ml or 100 g.
- These liquids and products must be packed in a transparent, resealable and fully closed plastic bag (max. capacity 1 l). No such plastic bags are available at our check-in area so travellers must ensure they obtain one in advance, for example a freezer bag from the supermarket.
- Prescribed medication and baby food may also be carried in hand luggage if the traveller can prove that they will be required during the flight.
Store all liquids and gels that you will not require during your flight in your checked luggage to ensure a quicker boarding process.
Liquids from Travel Value or duty-free shops
You may purchase liquids, gels and cream products in containers greater than 100 ml tax-free at airport shops and on board if they are sealed in a security tamper evident bag (STEB) along with the receipt at the time of purchase. If purchasing items on board, please ask the flight crew to seal them for you. Please note that due to high demand there may no longer be any more STEBs on board. You may take these items onto your connecting flight in your hand luggage if the seal is left intact and the receipt is in the bag. This applies to all departures from and via EU airports, including Norway, Iceland and Switzerland. We strongly recommend getting informed about the regulations specific to the destination or transit country prior to the flight.
We assume no liability for products that are opened or confiscated during transit or when exiting the plane.

Products and bags that do not comply with requirements or are not closed with a rubber band or similar must be handed over to security. Eurowings accepts no liability for any belongings brought along by passengers which must be handed over to security.
