Passenger Warning

In order to protect air traffic passengers, the EU introduces a limit concerning the amount of liquids allowed to be carried in the hand baggage, in the year 2006. These protective measures are applied at all EU, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland airports, and are also mandatory at the Republic of Croatia airports.
The liquids include: beverages, oils, perfumes, lotions, gels, mixtures of liquid and solid contents, containers under pressure such as shaving foams,gels, deodorants, perfumes and other items of similar content.

Only liquids in individual packages of up to 100 ml or 100 g volume, put in transparent, resealable plastic bags, may be carried inside the hand baggage. Maximal bag volume is 1 litre. The bag must be completely closed (see picture).

Passengers are still allowed to:

  • carry the above mentioned liquids if they are packed in the hold baggage. New regulations applying to hand baggage;
  • during flight liquids used for medical purposes, or for special nutritional needs, including baby food are to be carried inside the hand baggage. At the request of the person in charge, passengers are to prove the need to use them.
  • If passengers fly from any EU airport to the Republic of Croatia destinations, on direct flight or with transit at some other EU airport, they can carry on board liquids (drinks, perfumes …) bought in shops which are behind the Boarding Pass Control and / or Security Check. Liquids purchased in that manner must be put in transparent plastic bags (STEB). In the year 2008, EK 820/2008 Regulation came into force, according to which air traffic passengers flying from Croatia and with transit at some EU and Switzerland airport are again allowed to carry liquids into aircrafts, provided they are bought in airport Duty Free Shops, after Security Check and Boarding Pass Control. This Regulation refers to Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Rijeka, Pula and Zagreb airports. The stated permission is valid for goods purchased within 36 hours of transfer and packed in transparent plastic bags (STEB). The bags must be sealed, so that any attempt to open them can affect the content which must be visible.
