In recent times, there are lots of rules and regulations concerning the luggage and things you carry onboard an airplane. If you are aware of these rules and regulations, you can save time in those security check points and enjoy a smooth travel experience.
When you are planning a vacation, close attention must be paid on the things you need to carry on the plane. There are a few items that are prohibited from carrying on the plane and such items when found by the security personnel will be discarded. The items which are not allowed to be carried onboard airplane must be placed in a ziplock cover and packed in the check-in bag.
If you carry lighters, matches, pocketknives, knitting needles etc, it will be deemed as a weapon. However, the cigar cutters, nail cutters, safety razors etc are allowed to be carried on board by some airlines whereas others might not allow you to carry any of these items. It is always wise to talk to the airline and educate yourself about the things that are legal/illegal to carry. These could again vary from an airline to airline.
Many travelers may carry medicines that are probably not allowed onboard. In such scenarios, the passengers must declare these items to an airport security officer, so that they can be screened at the checkpoint. Ensure that you carry the medicines that are properly labeled along with the doctor’s prescription. If not, it will slow down the screening process.
Every airline has a specific limit of things that you can carry/bring for example, cash, gold, electronic items, gadgets etc. In case you exceed your limit you might have to pay excess fee. However, irrespective of whether you are carrying / bringing any of the above mentioned items, it has to be declared with the airline security officer at the airport.
Otherwise you will be liable for a penalty.
