Restrictions on Liquids, Aerosols and Gels in Cabin Baggage (LAGs)

Pursuant to the Aviation Security Directive (ref 03 of 2008), Liquids, Aerosols & Gels with a maximum container capacity of 100 ml to be placed in a re-sealable plastic bag with maximum capacity of 1 Litre will be accepted. Accordingly all originating passengers arriving to SSR Int airport are informed that in no circumstances will any oversized LAGS (in excess of 100 ml) be accepted in the Cabin Baggage irrespective of these LAGS being placed in sealed transparent plastic bag (Security Tamper Evident Bag - STEB).

In the event of passengers disembarking an Aircraft due to Technical problem, the following will apply:

  1. Upon passengers going through Transit Screening Point, their oversized LAGS will be exceptionally allowed as this represents a temporary controlled movement of passengers back to the Sterile Area pending their imminent departure.
  2. In case the flight is being cancelled and passengers proceed to hotel, aircraft operators shall arrange for all oversized LAGS including duty free purchases to be sent in the aircraft hold.

Filming and Photographing at Airport

Passengers are informed that baggage/ items above 95cm in height and width will not be processed through AML hold baggage screening, and therefore are requested to contact their respective airlines for necessary action.
