※1Liquids" include gels (toothpaste, hair gels, etc.), aerosols and sprays. For details, please see the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism website.

※2You may be asked for verification such as a prescription to identify your needs on board.

・Each passenger is allowed to carry only one plastic bag. The recommended dimension for the plastic bag is 20cm square or smaller. Passengers are responsible for bringing their own plastic bags.


・Liquids, such as alcoholic beverages and cosmetics that were purchased from a duty free or other shop after passing through embarkation processing may be carried onto the airplane despite the above limitations.


・Passengers departing from Fukuoka International Airport with a connecting flight abroad can carry liquids exceeding 100ml to their destination airport as long as they are purchased at the duty free shop and enclosed in security tamper-evident bags (STEBs).


≪Things to watch for when using STEBs≫

  ■If you are transferring at an airport in a country or territory that has not implemented STEBs,
   you will be asked to discard your liquids during the local safety inspection,
   so the duty free shops do not recommend the use of STEBs.


  ■To find out if the airport of your connecting flight permits the use of STEBs, please ask the
   duty free staff for details at the time of purchase.


  ■Even in airports that have STEBs integrated, due to reasons such as a change in the
   international situation, the judgment of the local security inspectors, or regulations in the
   final destination, you might be asked to dispose of liquids during the security inspection
   while transiting. Please take note.


・To expedite baggage inspections, remove such plastic bags, laptop computers (note PCs) and other electronic devices from your hand baggage and present them to the security personnel separately. Your coats and jackets will also be scanned separately from your baggage, so please be prepared for the X-ray inspection.

・The restrictions are subject to change without notice. For the latest information, please contact your airline or check the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism website.
