Birmingham Airport Baggage Security Information ...

Cabin Baggage and Size Allowed
Only one item per passenger is allowed through the airport search point with a maximum size of 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (note: the re-sealable bag must be able to fit within the cabin bag). Additional items, for example hand bags, will be required to fit inside the one permitted item of carry on baggage.
Screened, but permitted are walking aids, wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Outsize Items
All items of luggage which do not fit in the permitted cabin baggage size (maximum length 56 cm, width of 45 cm and depth of 25 cm) must be checked in to be placed in the aircraft hold.

An exception to this is musical instruments, these are allowed on the craft as a second item of hand baggage. It is advisable to check with your airline before travelling if any special arrangements need to be made.
Selected liquids are now allowed to be carried onto an aircraft, and thus through security controls, although certain restrictions apply regarding the quantities permitted.
Each liquid must be carried separately and in a capacity no greater than 100ml.
These containers of liquid must be carried through the airport in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag, which itself must not exceed 1 litre in capacity (approximately 20cms x 20cms). The contents of the plastic bag must fit comfortably and the bag sealed.

Note that only one such bag per passenger is allowed.
If carrying in one's hand luggage the bag must be presented for checking at the security control points.
Any liquids that can't be fitted within the re-sealable bag must be packed into the hold luggage. If in the main hold luggage, any amount of liquid can be check-in in.
Liquids include:
  • Drinks including water, soup, syrups
  • Creams, oils, perfumes, lotions, mascara etc
  • Pressurized containers and sprays including shaving foam and spray deodorants
  • Pastes, including toothpastes
  • Gels like hair and shower gel
  • Any other solutions and items of similar consistency
Liquid Baby Foods
Flying with baby foods - please be advised that baby foods and sterilised water are permitted in larger quantities above the 100ml limit but only sufficient for the journey. These liquids will be subject to a taste test at airport security.
Essential Liquid Medicines
Flying with medicines - please be advised that it is permitted to take essential medicines for the duration of your trip but they will be subject to the following authentications. You must obtain written permission from the airline and the airport. You should also have documentation from a qualified medical professional such as your GP or consultant.
Laptops and Electrical Items
Any laptops and large electrical items have to be screened separately, no screen within a hand luggage bag.
