Security measures are in place that limit the quantity of liquids, aerosols and gels you can bring onboard international flights.
Domestic flights are not subject to restrictions on how much liquid, aerosols and gels you can carry onboard, however dangerous and prohibited goods rules still apply.
Key facts about liquids, aerosols and gels for international flights:
- Passengers are only able to take liquids, aerosols and gels in containers up to 100ml in size in carry-on baggage.
- Contents must be stored in a resealable transparent plastic bag that measures approximately 20cm x 20cm.
- These restrictions affect items such as drinks, creams, perfumes, sprays, gels, toothpaste and other similar substances in hand luggage.
- Duty free goods in a sealed bag can be taken on board. Please note that if you have stopovers during your flight, your duty free goods might be subject to liquids, aerosols and gels restrictions. For advice on when to purchase duty-free, click here.
- Exceptions apply to baby products, medical (prescription and non-prescription) items and dietary requirements. Exempt items do not have to be carried in the clear, resealable plastic bag, but will still need to be security screened.

Forgot a clear plastic bag?
Don’t worry, security staff are on hand on Level 3 of the International Terminal departures area to provide advice and plastic bags to assist with preparation for screening.
Do the liquid, aerosols and gels rules apply to Duty Free shopping?
Duty free shopping is not exempt from the liquid, aerosol and gels restrictions.
If you are buying duty-free liquid, aerosol and gel items at the airport, be sure to purchase them after you have passed through this security screening process, unless they are less than 100ml.
If you have another international stopover (for example, Brisbane - Singapore - London), your duty free items purchased at Brisbane Airport will need to be scanned again at your stopover destination and could risk confiscation.

Tip: When in doubt, purchase and pick up later. Duty free items can be collected as you return to Brisbane Airport with JR Duty Free's Click and Collect service.
