Restricted amount of liquids in hand baggage
To protect you against the new threat of liquid explosives, the European Union (EU) has adopted security rules that restrict the amount of liquids that you can take through security checkpoints. They apply to all passengers departing from airports in the EU whatever their destination. These rules apply from Monday, 6th. November 2006 at all airports in the
EU and in Norway, Iceland and Switzerland and are valid until further
notice. Croatia introduced these measures at all airports on 15th December and
they will apply to all flights (domestic and international traffic).
This means that, at security checkpoints, you and your hand baggage must be checked for liquids in addition to other prohibited articles. Liquids must be held in containers with maximum capacity of 100 millilitres each and must be packed in one transparent plastic bag of not more than one litre capacity per passenger.
However, the new rules do not limit the liquids that you can buy at shops located beyond the point where you show your boarding pass or on-board an aircraft operated by an EU airline.
