These restrictions do not apply to liquids aquired and packed, in sealed bags, from the shops beyond the boarding card control point or on board of an airplane from a EU airline. 
However, sealed bags mustn't be opened before the screening checkpoints, and will always, if possible, remain closed and sealed until the final destination. 
These measures do not apply to baggage, that is going to be dispatched as cargo hold luggage, presented at the check-in desks.
 
In light of the developments in 10th August 2006, and in order to protect all passengers against the new threat of liquid explosives, the European Union adopted security measures that restrict the quantity of liquids, aerosols and gels allowed to pass at screening checkpoints.

These measures are in force since November 6 of 2006, in every airport of the European Union and Norwegian, Icelandic and Swiss airports and are applied to:

- All passengers; - Screening checkpoints of all EU airports and their destinations - Passengers are not authorized to transport liquids on their cabin baggage, except individual recipients with a capacity of 100 ml or equivalent (100g / 3 Oz), packed in a closed plastic bag, transparent which can be opened and closed again, under 1 liter.
The following are considered liquid, aerosols and gels:
- Pastes;
- Lotions;
- Liquid/Solid mixtures;
- Pressurized packages (such as tooth paste, hair gel, waters and other beverages, soups, syrups, perfumes, shaving foam and other articles of similar consistency);

Exceptions:

- Medical liquids, necessary throughout the entire trip, with their respective prescription or medical declaration;
- Dietetic Liquids, necessary throughout the entire trip, with their respetive medical certificate;

When sought, the passenger must supply or allow an authenticity proof of the exemption liquid, a taste or skin testing.

Hold Luggage

Travel Tips

Pay special attention to the weight limit of each airline. Ask us in advance. If you carry extra weight, most airline companies charge a tax for each kilogram in excess, the tax value varies between airlines.
If your luggage is lost, damaged or arrives late, you have the right to a limited monetary compensation up to 1220€.
However, airline companies are not held responsible if they took all the reasonable measures to avoid damages or if they were unable to took such measures.
For damaged luggage, you must press charges over the next seven days, near the airline, after receiving the luggage. For delayed luggage, there's a maximum of 21 days.

Under the community legislation, people with deficiencies or disabled are protected against discrimination during booking and boarding. They also have the right to assistance in airports (on arrival, departure or movement) and when boarding planes. In order to make care provision easier, it's recommended that you previously notify what your needs are.
