Taking Duty Free Liquids, Aerosols, Gels On BoardAs enforced by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) effectively as of June 1, 2007, the security measures restrict the amount of Liquids, Aerosols and Gels (LAGs) that passengers may take on board in their hand luggage on international flights in order to protect against the threat of liquid explosives. Only limited quantities of liquids, aerosols and gels, or similar substances may be taken on board an aircraft in your hand-carry luggage.
