Powdered Items

Any powdered material that is more than 350ml/12oz, like the size of a can soda drink, should be put in checked baggage and not in hand luggage.

Smart Luggage

Smart bags have lithium batteries to operate GPS tracking systems, phone chargers and electronic locks, which can be the cause linked to fires on planes. It is very more important to check the rules with an individual airline before you fly anywhere so that you do not carry smart luggage.

Baby Foods

If you are carrying baby food it should be checked and made sure that the governing authority has allowed it both at the departure and destination airports otherwise you can get yourself into trouble. Some governments, for example, allow a few items such as formula and cow’s milk in your hand luggage but you should have your baby along with you.

Some other items on the list included food items such as soups or liquid food. Peroxides or chemicals that can be dangerous, aerosols or multiple lighters are not permissible.
