This limitations constitutes a European Regulation and applies to all products of liquid form (water, drinks and beverages, perfumes, shampoos, creams, pastes, glue, lotions, contact lens fluid, sprays, toothpaste etc.).

Pharmaceutical and nutritional products of liquid form, indispensable to the passenger during flight, are allowed to be carried in the cabin baggage. You may be asked to prove the indispensability of the products for your trip.
