The maximum quantity of liquids, gels and aerosols permitted in carry-on baggage is 100ml/100g (3.4 oz) per container when placed in one clear, closed and re-sealable plastic bag no larger than one litre (one quart); maximum 1 plastic bag per passenger. Open, coloured or opaque plastic bags of any size containing liquids, gels or aerosols in containers of any size are not permitted through security screening.
Exemptions: baby formula, baby food and milk for passengers travelling with infants (needed for in-flight use only) prescription and essential non-prescription medicines.
Once past the security screening checkpoint, passengers may carry on board any liquids, gels and aerosols that have been purchased from retail and duty-free stores in the sterile area.
Transport of alcoholic beverages
Alcoholic beverages of more than 70% alcohol by volume are classified as dangerous goods. Leakage of flammable liquids can result in a fire and/or explosion. Proper packaging is required.
You can carry alcohol containers (including wine or beer and commercial products) in your checked baggage if:
- The percentage of alcohol by volume is equal to or less than 70% (140 proof)
- The quantity does not exceed five liters per person for alcoholic beverages whose percentage of alcohol by volume is 24 to 70%
If the alcohol percentage is more than 70% (force of proof 140), the product will not be accepted, either as checked baggage or as cabin baggage. Please contact our Cargo department
Passengers flying from Canada to the European Union (including the U.K)
, or passing through EU passenger screening points to connecting flights, may transport duty-free liquids, gels and aerosols purchased at a Canadian airport when placed in a secure, tamper-evident bag (STEB); otherwise these items must go into checked baggage at the transit airport.
Passengers arriving in Canada from the European Union and who are connecting to another Canadian destination may carry duty free liquids, aerosols and gels in a secure, tamper-evident bag (STEB).
Additional restrictions apply to passengers travelling on post cleared
flights (clearing Customs and Immigration formalities upon arrival) with destination of Orlando.
Arrival in Orlando
Due to the Orlando airport layout, arriving passengers go through Customs and Immigration and retrieve all of their checked baggage. After this point, passengers have two options:
- Deposit their checked bags onto a transfer baggage belt (for transport to the baggage carousel in the main terminal) - OR -
- Take all of their checked baggage with them (please note, there are no baggage carts available until the main terminal)
All passengers proceed upstairs to a secure monorail for a short ride to the main terminal.
In the unlikely event the monorail is not operating, all passengers will be required to deposit their checked luggage on the transfer belt, as moving through the terminal involves passing a security screening checkpoint. All liquids, gels and aerosols exceeding the allowable quantities (including those purchased in-flight or from your airport of departure) must be placed in checked baggage before being deposited onto the transfer belt. Quantities exceeding the allowable limits will be confiscated at the checkpoint.
