The plane is the fastest and most comfortable means of transport, but to travel serenely, there are a number of requirements that must be taken into account. One of them is the number of packages you can transport, and another of the rules that you must follow is the transport of liquids.
Liquids, gels, sprays, put in containers of less than 100 ml. If you put it in a bag with a transparent zipper with a capacity of 1 L or less, you can carry it on board as luggage. If you exceed the limit, please check it in as checked baggage. Hair sprays and insect repellent sprays can be applied.
Tightly wrap large containers of non-liquid foods such as poi, yogurt, chili sauce, jam and jelly and check them in as checked baggage. Only small capacity containers of less than 100ml may be carried on board. (You can carry the required amount of baby food on board).
A little harsh regulation but which is supposed to be for the safety of all
Liquids cannot be carried in carry-on baggage. If you take them, they should be in containers of less than 100ml.
In checked baggage, they allow you to carry liquids, but you should keep in mind that you need to carry them well protected so that you do not get any surprises when you open your suitcase.
An exception to this rule is that if you buy an item in airport stores, once you have gone through security, cologne, gel …, in this case if they let you take it in the plane.
If you travel only with hand luggage, or if you do not carry hygiene products and buy them at destination, or if you carry test bottles like the ones they give you in pharmacies, drugstores … which are a bit bulky and can get you out of a big rush.
When we travel abroad to visit friends or family, we usually take the opportunity to bring them some of those foods that they lack.

If you have to go to the hospital, pay the expenses because your suitcase is lost or your flight is delayed, or even if you have to cancel your trip, don’t worry, the insurance takes care of your health and you’re poached.
Solve your doubts about whether you can bring food on the plane or not
When it comes to whether food can be carried in hand luggage or in the hold, above all, you must take into account the regulations of the countries of origin and destination.
Bringing food on the plane on flights within the European Union
If its trip is from one country of the European Union to another, there is usually no restriction when taking food on the plane.
Yes, you will need to take into account the airline’s carry-on baggage restrictions in terms of size and weight and those relating to the transport of liquids by air at airports in the European Union. For the purposes of these measures, water or other drinks, soups, sauces, creams and oils are considered to be liquids.
Remember that these liquids on the plane should be kept in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml. and placed in a single transparent plastic bag or toiletry bag with an opening / closing system, the capacity of which does not exceed 1 liter.
Foods (special diets, children’s food, etc.) or medicines in liquid form that must be used during the trip can be taken on the plane as long as you justify their use, for example with a prescription or a prescription medical report. These products must be presented separately at security checks. However, you can carry food in your carry-on baggage, as well as any drinks purchased from airport stores.
Located after passing security checks, these foods will be placed in approved and sealed security bags, and with the corresponding purchase receipt.
And if you are traveling to the EU from third countries, can you bring food on a Hawaiian Airlines plane?
Imagine you traveled to Russia and wanted to go back to Spain with some cakes and a jar of caviar. Can you bring this food on the plane? To answer this question, we must consult the European Commission Regulation EC 206/2009, which applies “strict veterinary procedures and controls” to products that enter the luggage of passengers from third countries.
In general, this regulation concerns meat and dairy products and their derivatives (cheeses, sausages, etc.). It also limits the transport of food containing meat or milk (stuffed pasta, empanadas, etc.) and fish or shellfish. With some exceptions, the regulations establish weight limits. What does breaking the rules mean? In addition to losing them, failure to report these products may result in sanction or criminal proceedings.
Exceptionally, the regulation does not apply to these foodstuffs if they are intended for private consumption, their quantity does not exceed 10 kilos and they come from Andorra, Croatia, Greenland, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands, from Liechtenstein, Norway, San Marino and Switzerland.
