Can I carry food in my baggage?

Yes, you can carry them in your carry-on or checked baggage in an airtight container to avoid spills and smells. Follow these recommendations:
  • Avoid carrying vegetables, meat, fruit or milk.
  • If you are required to carry food with you, you may only transport small quantities and properly packed only in carry-on baggage.
  • As long as local authorities allow it, alcohol can be carried in your carry-on baggage. Please keep in mind that one person may not carry more than 5 liters of these beverages and that each bottle must not exceed 70% alcohol by volume.
  • It is important to avoid carrying food in additional space-sensitive pieces, as these can take up to 4 days to arrive on a domestic flight and up to 8 days on an international flight.
  • Perishable goods are not allowed in checked baggage or "Stand By" baggage.
  • Check on the customs forms whether the food you are transporting must be declared. Avoid being fined by the customs authorities.
