It is advisable to reach the airport in advance and in ample of time. The reason for this is due to the improved security measures which denote that check in can be more time-consuming than before. Passengers are now allowed to take more than a single piece of hand luggage with them through security. However, this differs from airline to airline and also the size and weight allowances vary between airlines. The size of the cabin baggage should not be bigger together with handles, side pockets and wheels than the following specifications: 56 cm tall, 15 cm wide and 25 cm deep.

Liquids in containers of more than 100 ml are not allowed. For liquids in containers less than or equal to 100 ml, they must be enclosed in a single, re-sealable, transparent plastic bag and this bag should not be more than 1 litre in volume.
