For your safety, there are rules which restrict the amount of liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGS) on flights into and out of Australia. These rules also apply when transiting on international flights within Australia.
For more information please use the following links from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development website regarding:
Prescription and non-prescription medicines (including special dietary products), and medical items required during a flight are exempt. For medicines and medical items, you will need to present these items along with proof (e.g. doctor's letter) at the screening point.
For those travelling with babies, there are exceptions for baby products required for the duration of the flight. These include baby milk, sterilised water, baby food and wet wipes.
There are no restrictions on the amount of liquids, aerosols and gels you can take onboard a domestic flight for a baby or infant. However, if you are connecting to an international flight or if your domestic flight is departing from an international terminal, limits apply.
You are allowed to carry onboard a reasonable quantity of liquid, aerosol or gel items for a baby or infant for international flights. Pack only what you need for the duration of a flight and any delays that may occur.
Baby products allowed may include, but are not limited to:
- baby milk, including expressed breast milk
- sterilised water
- baby food in liquid, gel or paste form.
