Make sure you read this section on prohibited and regulated goods.

Hand Baggage

For safety and security reasons, certain objects must not be carried in hand baggage:

·                 Revolvers, firearms and other projectile-firing equipment: equipment likely, or apparently likely, to be used to inflict serious injuries by firing a projectile;

·                 Devices with a paralysing effect: equipment designed specifically to put to sleep or immobilise;

·                 Pointed or sharp-edged objects: objects which, through their point or their cutting edge, are capable of being used to inflict serious injuries;

·                 Work tools: tools capable of being used to inflict serious injury or to threaten the safety of the aircraft;

·                 Blunt instruments: objects capable of inflicting serious injury when used to attack someone physically;

·                 Explosives, incendiary substances and devices: explosive or incendiary devices or materials capable or seemingly capable of being used to inflict serious injury or to threaten the safety of the aircraft;

·                 Liquids, aerosols and gels. For the rules applicable to small quantities of liquids see the Liquids section below

·                 All Hoverboards (also known as rideables, segways, airwheels, etc...) and electric bicycles

 

 

Electronic cigarettes

 

These are electronic devices which simulate a normal cigarette and the act of smoking.

For safety reasons, they cannot be carried in hold baggage because there is a risk of overheating and fire. You may only carry them with you in your hand baggage. However, their use is prohibited on board Luxair aircraft.

 

Lithium batteries

 

All electrical equipment powered by lithium batteries are potentially dangerous as they pose a fire risk. Transport of these equipment is subject to the IATA regulations for the carriage of dangerous goods. To know whether lithium batteries and electrical equipment powered by this type of battery are accepted in baggage, please see the “Lithium Batteries” section below.

Hold baggage

Passengers are prohibited from placing the following articles in their hold baggage taken into the security restricted area or on board an aircraft:

·                 Explosives, including detonators and detonator cords, percussion caps, grenades, mines and other military explosives, dynamite, powder, plastic explosive, smoke bombs and cartridges;

·                 Gas – propane, butane;

·                 Inflammable liquids, including petrol and methanol;

·                 Inflammable solids and reactive substances, including magnesium, firelighters, fireworks and other pyrotechnic items, signal rockets;

·                 Oxidants and organic peroxides, including bleach and bodywork repair kits;

·                 Toxic or infectious substances, including rat poison and infected blood;

·                 Radioactive materials, e.g. medical or commercial isotopes;

·                 Corrosive substances, including mercury, vehicle batteries;

·                 Components of vehicle fuelling systems which have contained fuel.

·                 All Hoverboards (also known as rideables, segways, airwheels, etc...) and electric bicycles.

Firearms and ammunition

 

Firearms and ammunition for sporting and hunting purposes may only be carried as hold baggage. The carriage of arms and ammunition is at the sole responsibility of the passenger and is only authorised under the following conditions:

·                 Arms and ammunition are prohibited in the cabin;

·                 Arm and ammunition must be declared at the moment of reservation and on checking in;

·                 Firearms must be empty, disassembled and packaged securely;

·                 Documentation for the weapon must be up to date (holder’s licence, authority to carry arms and all the import and/or export licences required for the countries concerned);

·                 Arms and ammunition containing explosive projectiles cannot be carried in the hold in registered baggage;

·                 The weight of ammunition carried is limited to 5 kg per passenger;

 

·                 Ammunition must be of small calibre and must not contain explosive projectiles. Ammunition must be placed in a solid container in wood, metal or fibre, preventing any shock or movement between cartridges.

Liquids

The following are considered to be liquids:

·   water and other drinks

·   soups

·   syrups

·   perfumes

·   gels (including hair gel and shower gel)

·   pastes (including toothpaste)

·   creams

·   lotions and oils

·   aerosols

·   the contents of pressurised containers such as shaving cream or deodorants

·   semi-liquid mixtures or any other item with a similar consistency

For safety and security reasons, passengers must not bring liquids into the security restricted area and in the cab of aircraft, apart from of liquids contained in individual receptacles of a capacity not exceeding 100 millilitres or equivalent, held in a resealable transparent plastic bag, of a capacity not exceeding one litre (e.g. a freezer bag). This bag must be presented at the inspection points. “Resealable” means that the passenger can seal it and security personnel can check its contents, for example zip-lock or pressure sealed bags.

Certain liquids can be taken into the cabin without restriction, under the following conditions:

·        Liquids intended for use in the course of the journey and which are required for medical purposes or meet a special dietary need (for example baby foods). Passengers must be able to produce, on demand, proof of the authenticity of the exempt liquid;

·        Liquids obtained from sales points located in an airside area beyond the boarding pass checkpoint, applying security procedures approved under the airport safety programme, as long as they are contained in a tamperproof bag and there is adequate evidence that the bag was acquired in the airport in question that day;

·        Liquids originating from sales points located in the security restricted area and applying security procedures approved under the airport safety programme;

·        Liquids obtained from another EU airport, as long as they are contained in a tamperproof bag and there is adequate evidence that the bag was acquired airside in the airport in question that day;

·        Liquids purchased on board an aircraft of an EU carrier, as long as they are contained in a tamperproof bag and there is adequate evidence that the bag was acquired on board the aircraft in question that day;

Liquids bought in in tax-free shops of non-EU airports or on board a non-EU/non-EFTA flight may not be brought into the cabin, even if they are packed in a sealed, transparent bag. 

Lithium batteries

To find out whether lithium batteries and electrical equipment powered by this type of battery are accepted as baggage, you need to know the energy of the batteries in watt hours and their configuration. In general, the applicable rules are as follows:

-       Lithium batteries of less than 100wh contained in electrical equipment for personal use such as mobile telephones, laptop computers, tablets, drones, cameras, MP3 players, cameras, etc. These devices must be carried in hand baggage.

-       Lithium batteries between 100wh and 160wh contained in electrical equipment such as the batteries contained in video cameras and automatic external defibrillators. Approval is required to authorise the carriage of these batteries/devices in baggage. Please contact Luxair.

-       Lithium batteries over 160wh, such as those contained in electrical and hybrid means of propulsion such as electric bicycles, hoverboards, airwheels and small Segways. The carriage of this type of battery and the associated devices is prohibited.

 

-       Spare batteries with exposed terminals are not accepted in checked baggage. If they are carried in hand baggage, they must be protected from short circuiting (insulated with adhesive tape and placed inside individual plastic bags or in their original packaging) and must be limited to personal use for spare batteries of less than 100wh and limited to two (2) per person for the spare batteries between 100wh and 160wh.
