How to make your trip more enjoyable with hassle-free screening experience?

If you plan to travel with your Liquids, Aerosols or Gels in your hand-carry baggage, you should follow these recommendations:
Do not carry more than you really need in your hand-carry baggage.
To get through security smoothly is to de-clutter your hand-carry baggage. Limit quantities to what is needed for the duration of the flight.
Pack Liquids, Aerosols or Gels in your checked-in baggage.
When possible, keep packing liquid in checked baggage. You will get through security faster.
Declare larger liquids.
Prescription medications, baby formula and milk (when travelling with infant or toddler) are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding 100ml-content and are not required to be in a transparent plastic bag. Declare these items for inspection at the security screening point.
Come early and be patient.
Heavy travel volumes and an enhanced security process may mean longer lines at security checkpoints.
If in any doubt, put your LAGs items in checked baggage.
