Safety and luggage

Lithium batteries

The primary goal of this information is to develop passenger awareness of the dangers associated with lithium batteries and portable electronic devices that use lithium batteries.

    For safety and security reasons, the ICAO/IATA Regulation on dangerous goods carried on board by passengers or crew members defines the following restrictions:

  • Defective and damaged batteries are prohibited in air transport
  • The passenger must carry spare batteries in hand luggage, and they must be secured against of a short circuit
  • Items that are primarily used as power sources, eg "Power bank", are considered spare batteries
  • Portable electronic devices with installed lithium batteries must be protected from damage and accidental activation
  • Limitations regarding lithium batteries for portable electronic devices and portable medical devices that passengers may bring on board are expressed in Watt hours (Wh) for lithium-ion batteries or lithium content expressed in grams (g) for lithium metal batteries

    Lithium-ion or Li-ion battery:

  • - Power up to and including 100 Wh does not require carrier approval

  • - Power greater than 100 Wh, but not greater than 160 Wh, requires carrier's approval

  • - Power greater than 160 Wh - batteries are prohibited for air transport

    Lithium metal batteries:

  • - For a maximum of 2 (g) grams of lithium content, the carrier's approval is not required

  • - For more than 2 (g) grams, but not more than 8 (g) grams of lithium content, the approval of the carrier is required

  • - For more than 8 (g) grams of lithium content - batteries are prohibited for transport in passenger traffic

Air carriers, as well as individual countries, have the right to refuse the transport of certain dangerous goods in order to protect and ensure the safety of air traffic.

For all information regarding the transportation of dangerous goods, please contact your carrier at least one day before your travel.


Hold luggage

Label your luggage with your name and contacts. Make sure your luggage does not exceed in weight and number for a specific allowance that depends on:

Airline, class of service and destination of your travel

Information on dangerous goods that can be brought into the aircraft is taken from the current edition of the Regulations on the Transportation of Dangerous Goods in Air Traffic (IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations) - Table 2.3.A

    Inside the hold luggage, it is strictly forbidden to carry any DANGEROUS GOODS like:

  • Gases (freezing, flammable or non-flammable, poisonous, etc.) as butane, propane, oxygen, nitrogen, camping gas, compressed gases for medical or sports use
  • Corrosives, acid or alkaline materials, mercury, vehicle batteries
  • Explosives, firearms, weapons and ammunitions - unless they are part of authorised hunting or sport equipment - rockets, detonators, fuses, grenades and mines, toys resembling or reproducing weapons
  • Flammable solids and reactive substances, including magnesium, firelighters, fireworks, flares, flammable liquids, like petrol, gasoline, methanol
  • Other dangerous goods and items like magnetised, toxic, noxious, oxidizers and organic peroxides, including bleach
  • Poisons and infective agents and/or substances
  • Biological liquids (blood, urine, etc.)
  • Radioactive material
  • Devices with installed Lithium batteries
  • Torches with installed batteries

In case bag allowance is exceeded – passengers will have to pay an excess luggage fee (at the airport information counter). It is recommended to check in advance baggage rules and limitations with the carrier.

If you have special luggage like: sports equipment – surfboard, bikes, scuba equipment, musical instruments – fragile objects, it is necessary to notify the special bag at the time of booking. For more information on special luggage always check with your airline before departure time.

Hand luggage

Usually, each passenger can carry onboard a single piece of luggage.

Carriers may have different hand luggage rules and limitations. It is recommended to check with the airline, before departure, whether specific regulations apply.

    Certain articles are not allowed in your hand luggage for security reasons:

  • Guns
  • Firearms
  • Weapons
  • Toy guns and weapons and replicas of all types
  • Any pointed/edged/sharp object (cutlery, knives, penknives, box cutters, Knitting needles, nail files, nail clippers, razor blades, scissors)
  • Blunt instruments
  • Explosives
  • Chemical
  • Toxic and flammable substances
  • Any kind of spray

Liquids that are allowed in the aircraft cabin have to be carried in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 ml. (3.4 Oz.) or 100 gr. Each and held in a re-sealable transparent plastic bag of a capacity non exceeding 1 litre or a size of 18x20 cm per each passenger.

All passengers please note it may be necessary to leave your hand luggage in front of the aircraft steps. It depends on the type of the aircraft you are traveling by. Our staff will notify you in advance and remind you to remove all dangerous goods applying to the hold luggage rules before you drop the bag off in front of the aircraft steps.


In 2006, in order to protect passengers in air traffic, the EU introduced a limitation on the amount of liquids in hand luggage. These protection measures are applied in all airports of the EU, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland, and are also mandatory in the airports of the Republic of Croatia.

Liquids include: drinks, oils, perfumes, lotions, gels, mixtures of liquids and solids, contents of pressurized bottles such as shaving foams, gels, deodorants, perfumes and other items of similar content.

Essential medicines, as well as baby food and milk are permitted in quantities larger than 100 ml, but only for use during the trip. You may be requested to prove its authenticity.

Duty free liquids purchased from any airport or airline may be carried as hand luggage provided the duty-free liquid and its purchase receipt are sealed inside a security bag at the time of purchase with a red border called STEB. This security bag cannot be opened until the arrival at the final destination. The security officer may need to open the security bag for screening: in case of connecting flights at other airports during the same trip, it is necessary to ask the security officer to re-seal the duty-free liquids in a new security bag.


Security check

For security reasons, all passengers must undergo a security control before entering the departure area and the boarding gates. Hand and hold luggage must be X-rayed and scanned due to maintaining air traffic safety.

    At security check:

  • Put all liquids up to 100ml packed in a 1L transparent, re-sealable plastic bag into a tray for screening.

  • Take off your jacket and put it in another tray for a separate screening.

  • Remove all metal items from your body (keys and coins from your pockets, watch, belt, jewerly and mobile phone) and place them into a tray for separate screening.

  • Remove your laptop and other electronic devices from your hand luggage and put it into plastic tray for separate screening.

  • Go through the metal detector door when asked to do so by one of the security officers.

  • Passengers with pacemaker must notify the security officers before going through metal detector door.

Additional infromation

Never leave your luggage unattended. Unattended luggage will be removed by security staff. Be aware of airport security measures and have your ID and passport always with you in case of additional inspections. Warn the airport staff on every irregularity.
