Guidelines Regarding Hand Luggage To/From The USA
In compliance with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), passengers may not bring liquids, gels, creams and aerosols to the cabin of the aircraft unless complying with the requirement below:

  • All liquids, gels, creams and aerosols must be in 3.4 ounce (100ml) or smaller containers.

To avoid any unpleasantness at the airport, it is recommended to store all liquid items in the passenger's checked baggage.
Please make sure the regulations are followed, in order not to have the containers thrown away.

Hand luggage that has been through a technological check (X-ray) may be carried on board, as follows: 
  • It is permissible to carry on board, in hand luggage, beverages that were purchased in duty free before boarding the plane.
  • It is permitted to carry on a small-sized transparent travel bag with toiletries.
  • Medications and baby food should be declared before the bag is scanned.

  • Please note: notwithstanding all of the aforementioned checks, other checks may be made at the boarding gates.
  • Passengers with continuation flights may purchase duty free products only if they leave the products in Israel (tax exempt and stored).
  • Products that may not be taken on the plane cannot be purchased on the plane by passengers who have continuation flights.
  • There are no additional restrictions on products that are in luggage in the hold of the plane.
