Change in luggage policy on flights from Bangkok and Johannesburg

Change in luggage policy on flights from Bangkok and Johannesburg
Bangkok and Johannesburg have joined the countries prohibiting departing passengers from carrying on certain items such as liquids, creams, etc. of a certain size in their hand luggage, as is the practice in EU countries, China, Hong Kong and the United States.
This also applies to passengers with continuation flights, that is, passengers from Ben Gurion Airport to Bangkok and Johannesburg with continuation flights to another destination, who have purchased products in duty free shops and/or on the plane during the flight, that are forbidden to be carried in hand luggage. These products will be confiscated by the local security authorities.

Passengers from Ben Gurion Airport to Bangkok and Johannesburg and passengers on continuation flights can take one piece of hand luggage on board.

They are allowed to bring on board drinks, liquids, sprays of up to 100 ml per product.
The package size of the product should be up to 100 ml.

  • The products can be stored in a sealed transparent bag of up to 1 liter in volume.
  • The bag with the products should be presented separately from the hand luggage when going through the security check.
  • Only one bag per passenger may be taken on board.
  • Taking baby food and necessary health products on board requires special approval.
