How to Fly Through Security at Liverpool John Lennon Airport

How to fly through security

To help your journey through security go as smoothly as possible:

  • Remove coats, hats, scarves, belts and heeled shoes or boots before you reach the front of the security queue.
  • Pre-prepare your liquids in 100ml containers and keep them separate from your hand luggage, in a clear resealable 20x20cm bag. Plastic bags are available to buy from vending machines at Security, 4 bags for £1.

Liquids, Medicines, Baby Food and Milk

There are restrictions on the amount of liquids you can take in your hand luggage through security. If possible, liquids should be placed in your hold baggage.

Passengers may carry small quantities of liquids within separate containers, each of which should not exceed 100ml in capacity. These containers must be placed within a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag measuring approximately 20cm by 20cm. Passengers may carry a combined quantity of liquid up to 1 litre within the liquid bag.  

Only ONE transparent bag of liquids is permitted per passenger. It must be presented separately at security.

The term "Liquids" also includes gels, aerosols such as deodorant, pastes such as toothpaste, canned goods in sauces (beans, tuna in brine, etc), perfume, foundation, mascara and make-up, e-cigarette cartridges and lighters (only one permitted per person).

Medicines

Essential medicines may be permitted in large quantities above the 100ml limit, but will be subject to authentication. All medicines should carry the prescription label clearly showing the name of the passenger.

Baby Food and Milk

When travelling with a baby, you're allowed to take enough baby food and/or baby milk for the journey, even if that is over the 100ml limit. These may be opened for testing at security.
