3. Pack valuables in your hand baggage
Play it safe and pack all your valuables (such as money, camera, laptop or medication) in your hand baggage.
4. Check what you are permitted to pack in your hand baggage
What can I bring on board? For security reasons, certain items are not allowed to be brought into the aircraft cabin, which include fragile items, large electrical devices, fluids (if over 1 litre or not filled correctly), and perishable foodstuffs.
5. Pack your electronic cigarettes in your hand baggage
Electronic cigarettes / e-cigarettes (including battery) may only be transported in your hand baggage. Transportation in checked baggage is not permitted. Please note however that smoking (including e-cigarettes) is forbidden on board.
