Connections and transfers:
If you come from the United States and transfer through Glasgow Airport, the same rules apply to liquids stored in a clear plastic bag as part of your carry-on baggage. No container must be more than 100ml.

If you are arriving from the EU, you can fly with all liquids purchased from your originating airport or on board your inbound flight, providing you have proof of purchase and the item was bought less than 24 hours previously.

If you are arriving from outside of the EU all liquids must be in individual containers not greater than 100ml capacity. They must be placed in one transparent, resealable bag, no larger than 20cm x 20cm (8in x 8in) in size, and fit comfortably inside the bag so it can be fastened closed.

If you are arriving from Singapore you can fly with all liquids from Changi Airport, providing you have proof of purchase and the item was bought less than 28 hours previously.

At Security Control:
Have your resealable bag ready for inspection at security. Ensure it is closed and kept separate to your hand luggage. To expedite the security check process you should:
Remove laptops and other large electrical equipment from your bag.
Put all small items like keys, coins, mobile phones into your coat or hand baggage and place these into a tray.
Place your hand baggage into the tray.
If you have liquids in containers of 100ml or less, you can put these into a clear resealable bag. These items should be placed alongside other items in your tray.
If you have been asked to remove your shoes place these in the tray too.
Place any large electrical goods into a tray.
Any liquid/paste medicines in containers over 100ml may require verification at the security checkpoint.
Place hand baggage onto the roller bed for x-ray.
Go through the security archway when called forward by one of the security officers.
