Here's What You Should And Should Not Carry On A Plane This Holiday Season

Passengers can carry small knives, with a blade of six cm or less, in their carry-on luggage on flights to Europe. However, they are prohibited on flights to the US.

Longer knives will, of course, be immediately seized.

While liquids are allowed, there is a limit on them. Passengers can carry 100 ml of any one item in a carry-on bag. 

This does not include medication, baby food, formula, and juice for children.

You can also carry 350 ml or less of inorganic powders, such as bath salts.

A complete list of items permitted on flight can be found here.
