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.

FUELS all types are not allowed for checked-in or handcarry. This includes lighter refills, butane can, matches, etc. Also not allowed are flammable paints and thinners and explosives such as firecrackers, fireworks and flares.

You can bring in your lighters but make sure it is drain of its lighter fluid.

If you have e-cigarettes you can carry it on your bag, but you can’t checked-it in.

Sorry, but you can’t bring your pet on the airplane. You can’t check-it in nor can you carry your favorite pet. It’s not allowed.


The following items are not allowed to be carried in the cabin. You must place these items in your checked-in baggage:

Any bladed items or sharp objects such as nail cutters, swiss knives, balisong, scissors, nippers etc.

Long umbrellas (folding umbrellas are now allowed as hand-carry)

Bicycle chains and jacks or other similar items.

All kinds of adhesive tape like masking, packing, scotch, duct, electrical, rubber and similar items.

All sports equipment are not allowed to be handcarried and must be checked in. This includes surf boards, golf equiptment, bicycles, etc.

For safety reasons, dangerous goods (items, articles or substances which are capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment) must not be carried in passengers’ hand carried or checked baggage.
