In the light of an increased number of terrorist plots airport security has become more and more strict over the years. In 2006 restrictions came in that stated that no liquid, paste or lotion over 100ml march be taken onboard a flight in hand luggage, and all liquids under 100ml in hand luggage must be placed in one 20cm x 20cm transparent bag and presented at the security check in. The exception to this being any liquid you might buy on board the flight or in the duty free shops near the departure lounge. But what about medication?
According to the UK government website, tablets, capsules, cooling gel packs, medical equipment and essential liquid medicines are all ok to be taken on in hand or hold luggage (so long as they screen successfully). Although to do this you must have a document from a medical professional confirming that they are essential to you – a doctor’s note will do for this. However it’s a good idea to check that the destination that you are flying to will also allow you to do this.
