Hand baggage

What can you bring into the cabin? From size and weight limits to prohibited items and transporting liquids, find out all you need to know to prepare your hand baggage.

Visas, passports, entry formalities… Get informed before departure.
Certain countries impose restrictions on the liquids that you may transport on board (creams, aerosols, gels, etc.). Air France recommends that you place as many of your liquids as possible in your checked baggage.

How should you transport liquids in the cabin?

If you are traveling to or connecting in one of the 28 countries of the European Union or one of fifty other countries, you can transport liquids in your hand baggage as long as they are:
  • in small quantities (100 ml max. per product),
  • placed in a clear, sealed plastic bag (i.e. freezer bag) with a maximum volume of 1 liter. You must seal the bag and all items must fit easily inside. A single plastic bag is permitted per passenger.

Liquids accepted without restrictions

You can bring the following liquids with you:
  • medical substances necessary for your health – please note: airport security agents may ask you to verify the substance (possibly by tasting),
  • specific nutritional substances without which you cannot travel (for lactose intolerance, gluten allergies, etc.),
  • medicines prescribed by a doctor, accompanied by an official document proving their necessity (prescription, medical certificate in your name, etc.),
  • baby food.

Looking to save time at baggage inspection?
Present each item of hand baggage separately:
  • liquids placed in a clear, sealed plastic bag,
  • notebook computer removed from its case,
  • coat or jacket,
  • coins, keys, etc.

Duty-free liquids

Flight with no connections

You can purchase duty-free liquids in any airport or on board, as long as they remain in a sealed plastic bag. You must keep the receipt and make sure it is clearly displayed inside the sealed bag. The receipt must list the airport or airline company through which your purchase was made.

Flight with connections

  • Connecting flight in a country within the European Union*
    On board your connecting flight departing from the European Union, you may transport duty-free liquids purchased at your departure airport or on board, as long as they remain in a sealed plastic bag. You must keep the receipt and make sure it is clearly displayed in the sealed bag. The receipt must list the airport or airline company through which your purchase was made.
  • Connecting flight in a country outside the European Union*
    You must check the current regulations concerning the transport of liquids in the cabin that are applicable to the country in which you have a connecting flight. If permitted by local regulations, Air France may accept in the cabin duty-free liquids purchased during your connection, as long as they remain in a sealed plastic bag. You must keep the receipt and make sure it is clearly displayed in the sealed bag. The receipt must list the airport or airline company through which your purchase was made.
