  • what are the current rules on taking liquids through the airport comong back from Tenerife please? We always buy our spirits etc in Los Gigantes because its cheaper than duty free at the airport and we usually carry it back in hand luggage, not suitcases. Is this still ok?
    Coming out on Tuesday! can't wait to be back! ;D

  • No liquids even toothpaste in hand luggage. Flying out from Manchester they were even taking cigarette lighters off people, there were two large bins full of them! Coming back from Tenerife the no liquids/creams/toothpaste rules were very prominently displayed, although the didnt seem to be collecting lighters.

  • I found this:
    From the 22nd September 2006, the UK Department for Transport has restored to normal the hand baggage size restrictions.  Each passenger is permitted to carry ONE item of hand baggage up to 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm.  These dimensions include the wheels, handles, side pockets, etc.

    However, please note that some restrictions on the carriage of liquids in hand baggage remains.

    Customers may NOT carry the following items through security in their cabin bag.

    Liquid cosmetics, all toiletries, all liquids, all drinks, cigarette lighters, gels, pastes, lotions, (e.g. toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, deodorant, shaving foam, aerosols, etc.)

    Cabin baggage CAN contain the following:

    Solid cosmetics endash  eye shadow, face powder
    Electronic equipment, including laptops, phones, portable music and DVD players.
    Prescribed medicines in liquid or tablet form e.g. diabetic medicines
    Baby milk and liquid baby food (the contents of each bottle MUST be tasted by the parent)
    All electronic equipment will need to be removed from the item of hand baggage and screened separately.
    Pushchairs and walking aids will be permitted but must be x-ray screened and searched.

  • Hello  every  one
    from  today  at  mid-night  the  law  has  changed  here  in the  whole  of  Spain, including  Tenerife.
    They  have  stepped  up  security.  I  will  let  Gigi  translate  it  into  English,  better  than  me. 
    In madrid  today,  people  were  waitting  up  too  6  hours  at   security  pass  point,  planes  were  leaving  half  empty,  because  the  people  were  delayed.  they  have  now  said  that  you  should  turn  up  at  least  3 and  half  hours  before  your  flight.  it  has  all  been on the  news  today,  so  wait  for  gig  to  explain it  all  toy  you  and  what  it  means  to  British  pasengers  flying  back  too  England

    In answer to original question I came back on Monday the 6th. Do not leave any bottles bought in the supermarkets in your hand lugage. ALL bottles carrying ANY liquid will not be allowed in hand baggage and must be put in your hold luggage. The security people were confiscating  quite a few bottles . The Xmas party for them should be very good indeed. Once thro' security you can buy and carry on to the plane any liquids.

  • It is fine coming back from Tenerife in your hand luggage but going out from England to anywhere is where the rules come in
