It is a good idea to bring as little carry-on baggage as possible.
You should pack any non-essential liquids in the baggage you will be checking in with your airline. Then you won’t have to deal with the restrictions for carry-on baggage.
If you are travelling only with a carry-on bag, or if you need to carry liquids onto the plane with you in your hand baggage, please read the rules below.
The rules for how much baggage you may carry with you onto the plane vary from airline to airline. For this reason, we recommend you contact the airline you will be flying with if you have any questions about how much carry-on baggage you are permitted to bring or about possible size and weight restrictions.

EU rules concerning liquids in carry-on baggage
The EU introduced rules limiting the amount of liquids allowed in carry-on baggage in 2006. The rules apply to all airline passengers travelling from EU airports.
What can I pack?
You are only allowed to pack liquids or liquid substances in containers that can hold a maximum of 100 millilitres (1/10 litre) in your carry-on baggage.
You may pack more than one container in your carry-on baggage, but the quantity may not exceed the number of containers that can fit into a transparent one-litre plastic bag that is re-sealable. Passengers are allowed to bring only one of these bags.

Your plastic bag containing liquids should be presented at the security control.
Certain liquids and liquid substances are exempt from the EU rules, including baby food, medicines and similar substances which are allowed for in-flight use in quantities exceeding 100 millilitres. However, you should be aware that security staff may request that you provide proof that the substance is what you say it is.
You may still pack liquids and liquid substances purchased after you pass the security checkpoints:
Such articles must, however, be kept in a sealed bag until you reach your final destination.
Please direct any questions you may have about the above to the Danish Civil Aviation Administration
