Manchester Airport have lifted the 1 bag per passenger rule - more info We would remind all passengers that each airline has their own policy regarding the amount of hand baggage allowed on their aircraft and we strongly recommend that information regarding this is sought directly from the Airline before travel. Liquids
Passengers will be allowed to take liquids, gels and pastes of 100mls or less in their hand baggage. These items must be contained within a small, transparent re-sealable plastic bag, which will have to be removed from their hand baggage and x-rayed separately. To save time and expense please come prepared with your own correct sized plastic bag, however you can purchase plastic bags in the terminals. Plastic bags are sold in ALL Terminals with two bags available for £1, if you forget to bring your own. Plastic bag dispensers are conveniently located in multiple sites around check-in and security alongside coin change machines.  The new rules stipulate that the plastic bag must not exceed one litre capacity per passenger - that’s around half the size of a standard A4 piece of paper and it must be sealable. The bag can contain two or more items of less than 100mls/100g each but must not be cluttered to allow security officers to carry out thorough checks. Liquids include:
Water and other drinks, soups, syrups
Creams, lotions and oils
Gels, including hair and shower gels
Contents of pressurised containers, including shaving foam, other foams and deodorants
Pastes, including toothpaste
Liquid-solid mixtures
