food in hand luggage

Post by Rich00cap on Sun 11 Oct 2009 - 12:22

Hi all

Quick question regarding carrying food in hand luggage. I'm in Sweden now and want to take some caviar and some local pickle spread in tubes back with me. The tubes, similar to toothpaste or tomato puree tubes range in size from 150grams to 300g. Would I be allowed to take these in my hand luggage? Not sure if the toiletries rule of 100ml or less applies to foodstuffs. I'm flying in the morning so would really appreciate a quick reply.
Many thanks to you all for your help

I am afraid the 100ml rule applies also to food that is not solid :

On the Arlanda website :

You may take the following items onboard in your hand luggage:

  • Liquids and wax or gelatinous substances in containers of up to 100 ml.
  • The containers shall fit comfortably in one transparent, resealable plastic bag that doesn’t exceed 1 litre
  • The bag must be completely closed
  • Liquids include gels, pastes, lotions, liquid/solid mixtures and the content of pressurised containers, e.g. toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfume, shaving foam, aerosols and other items of similar consistency.
  • You may also bring liquids for medical purposes and special dietary requirements, including baby food, in your hand luggage.


More precisions on the Brussels website (rules are the same anywhere in europe) :

What are ‘liquids & gels’?
Water and other drinks, soup, syrup, …
Care products: creams, lotions and oils,
shampoo, perfumes, shaving foam,
hairspray, hair and shower gels,
toothpaste, mascara, lipstick, lip gloss,
deodorants, …
Food products including runny cheeses, chocolate
spread, jam, yoghurt, peanut butter, …
Liquid medicines including cough syrup, …
Liquid-solid mixtures such as foods in sauce, …
Fluids in pressurised spray cans including deodorants,
hairspray, …
Sprays including eau de toilette, perfume, …
Gels including hair gel, cooling gels, …
Pastes including chocolate spread, peanut butter,
toothpaste, …
Any other product of similar consistency.

Thank you both for your quick replies. I have already checked in online, will I be able to add a bag to my booking online or will I have to pay it at the airport?

This is what it says on the Ryanair website :

Checked baggage can be purchased online at the time of booking or via the ‘Manage My Booking’ section of our website. Checked bags can also be purchased via a call centre up to 4 hours prior to the scheduled flight departure (subject to call centre opening hours) or up to 40 minutes prior to the scheduled flight departure time at the airport.

The checked baggage fees are charged per person/per one way flight. Discounted rates apply online the first 15 kilo checked bag is charged at £15/€15 and the second 15 kilo checked bag at £35/€35. If checked baggage fees are paid for either at the airport or through a Ryanair call centre, the higher rate of £35/€35 for the first 15kg bag and £70/€70 for the second 15kg bag applies

food restrictions

Post by martina on Tue 2 Aug 2011 - 10:56

hi!
I have a question about food restrictions in hand luggage. Am I allowed to take tea (medical use; within size restrictions) in handluggage? the tea is not packed in teabags but in a clear plactic bag.
I am afraid if i take it it could cause me trubble because of the way it looks (simmilarity to some illegal substances)?
i`m flying from italy to uk.

thanx

I presume that your tea is not in liquid form, but is in the "solid" state, as leaves ?
If so, there is no problem : you put it in your handluggage and nobody will bother.
In Italian airports, drug controls are often made with dogs who sniff the baggage (mainly on arrival).

yes, the tea is in "solid" state, as smashed leaves. I think the best way to store it it will be in oroginal package althow the declaration is not in english language (slevenian).

thanx 4 answers!
