Liquids, Aerosols and Gels


To protect against the threat of liquid explosives, there are rules for taking liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) on flights in and out of Australia. These rules also apply to passengers arriving on international flights who are transiting in Australia, and passengers travelling on the domestic leg of an international flight within Australia.

There are quantity limits for liquids, aerosols and gels passengers may take onboard the aircraft with them, and specific rules around duty free liquid, aerosol or gel items.

Certain exemptions apply for medicines, medical products, medical devices and baby products that you may need during the flight.  The Australian Government’s TravelSecure website  provides further information about LAG restrictions and LAG exemptions.
