How to pack your carry-on baggage

Your carry-on baggage and the bins will be fed into the x-ray machine so that a screening officer can examine the contents. Sometimes carry-on baggage may require an additional search if screening officers discover items that are not permitted.

  • If you are unsure of what items are allowed in carry-on baggage, see What can I bring? before packing your luggage.

  • Make sure you can easily remove your laptop, video camera and film camera from your carry-on baggage.

  • Place your personal toiletries in a clear plastic bag. Only bring liquids, aerosols and gels that are in containers of 100 ml/100 g (3.4 oz) or less. All of these items must be stored in a single closed, resealable clear plastic bag with a maximum capacity of 1 L (1 qt).

  • The total quantity of certain powders and granular materials (e.g., baby powder, foot powder, certain baking and spice powders , sand) is limited to 350 ml in carry-on baggage.

  • Exempt liquids – such as medications, infant formula or breast milk – should be placed so that they can be easily removed from carry-on baggage for inspection.

  • Avoid bringing gifts and souvenirs containing liquids, aerosols and gels in your carry-on baggage. This includes: alcohol, wine, beer, snow globes, cans of condensed soup, maple syrup, perfume and lotions. Pack them in your checked baggage or ship them separately.

  • Fragile items, such as prescription glasses and sunglasses, tableware, figurines and glassware, should be packed securely in your carry-on baggage to ensure they don't break.
