These are the Philippine airport security restrictions that are most relevant to ordinary travelers and flyers like us.
No wires and cable allowed on carry-on bag. Laptop charger in the laptop bag is exempted, as well as chargers for phone, tablet and cameras.
You can checked-in alcoholic beverages such as wines, liquiors, whisky. But you can only checked-in at most 5L of alcoholic beverages. Be mindful of this especially when you are at Duty Free excitedly buying liquors for pasalubong.
VERY IMPORTANT: At the final xray machine area, all liquids, aerosols, and gels (LAGs) in containers exceeding 100 ml will be confiscated. Question: What if I have a perfume in a 125 ml bottle, and I have used up lots of it that the actual perfume is now below 100 ml, am I allowed to have it on my hand-carry bag? No, you may not. This is because the airport only allows 100ml CONTAINERS or bottles to pass through to the final departure waiting area. This is also true for body lotion, shampoos, liquid soap etc.
SAMPLE of things not allowed inside your hand carry Luggage
Recommendation: If you have been shopping in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok,etc and plans to hand-carry your perfumes, make sure that the bottle is 100 ml and below so you won’t face issue. If you have checked-in baggage allowance, then you can bring back to the PH perfume bottles exceeding 100ml by checking it in.
Moreover, your liquids in 100 ml and below bottles must be sealed well so it won’t leak in case there is a change in cabin pressure. It would be best if you put it in airtight plastic bags before you put it on your pouch.
