There are rules that control what is allowed to bring in your luggage. It is the Swedish Transport Agency that develops rules regarding aviation and ensures that these are complied with.
The Swedish Transport Agency has list those items which are not to be packed in hand baggage carried onto the aircraft as well as those items not permitted in baggage to be checked-in.
If you would like more information of what is applicable for each airline, please check with your airline.
Different regulations apply for different airlines for size, weight, price and number of baggage items. Read more about what applies for your airline on their own websites:
It is important that you follow the regulation. Otherwise you might have to pay an extra fee to be able to bring your hand luggage onboard, or you have to leave it at the gate to be destroyed. There are no luggage storage possibilities at the airport.
What about my luggage?
The allowed weight and number of checked-in luggage vary for each airline. For information about what regulations apply on your airline, please check the airline website or app.
Backpacks with loose hanging straps are not allowed to check-in. All straps must be carefully tied together, or you can put the backpack in a protection plastic bag, that protects your backpack against dirt and damage in the baggage handling process. You can purchase plastic protection bags for backpacks in the Airport Information for a fee of SEK 20.
We recommend that you buy a protection plastic bag for your checked-in stroller in the Airport Information, for a fee of SEK 60. The bag keeps the stroller protected against dirt and that loose parts get stuck and/or destroyed in the baggage handling process.
Liquids in larger containers than 100 ml are only allowed to be transported in your checked-in baggage. Smaller containers of maximum 100 ml you can bring onboard in your hand luggage. Put them in a 1 liter resealable plastic bag, maximum 1 plastic bag per person.
Liquids also include gels, pastes, lotions, liquid solid mixtures and pressurized containers.
The only exceptions are:
- medication and/or dietary products essential for your flight.
- baby food and milk, essential for your flight.
- Duty free goods in a sealed security bag, with receipt, purchased at an airport or on board the airplane (so called STEB).
These exceptions will be screened with special technical equipment in the Security Check.
Pack all articles, which can be classed as pointed weapons – this includes scissors, nail files, knives, corkscrews and tools in your checked-in baggage.
If any sharp instruments or liquids are found during the security controls, the traveller will be asked to go back to the check-in counter and check-in the article or throw the article away.
