Yes you can, provided that the containers are 3 oz or less. (get someone to translate that to metric for you)

1 fluid once (OZ) is approximately 30 ml, so you can take 90ml of the above mentioned liquids with you

Also, I'll believe you'll need to have those 3 oz. bottles in a one-quart plastic bag -- approx. 8"x8".

Also, I don't think I could have packed more imperial measurements into that sentence if I had tried. Sorry about that -- I'm certified illiterate when it comes to the metric system.

The rules at AMS are: containers up to 100ml, all must fit in a plastic bag of 1 liter, provided by security. Double check with your airline to be sure.

For the metric illiterate out there.

A 1 liter ziplock means a sandwich sized bag.

Cheers

Well, so far. Thanks. You have been very helpfull. I had a lot of packing to do (inc.my triathlonbike). I am racing Ironman Florida on the fourth.
I was planning to search for it on the web, Instead I thought you all could give me the information. Everything is settled now. Looking forward flying "the friendly skies". Cheers.  Smile

I doubt that'll be the case in Amsterdam - and I know from personal experience about 12 hours ago that the new regulations are being used in Frankfurt as well (though I still don't get what the ziploc-bag is supposed to add in terms of security).

It happened to me two weeks ago in Malaysia on the MH LAX-KUL sector (TPE was already updated, but KLIA was not)

The ziplock bag is see through so that the inspector can visualize that the liquids do not appeat suspicious (such as looking like home bottled nerve agent or something I suppose) and the zip lock seal is to keep the bottles from leaking onto the x-ray maching conveyor belt or otherwise making a mess.

I don't think anybody's being very militant about that quart-sized plastic bag requirement - at least in terms of the size. I think it's just supposed to be a common sense size of bag. When I flew to and from Japan, they didn't seem to care much about liquids at all - though they did take a quick glance at what I had. They sort of just quickly eyeballed it, on both sides of the Pacific. And I took my contact lens cleaning solution through in my pocket and nobody caught it in either direction. These regs are basically a joke.

One weird thing - it is possible they took my camera lens cleaning solution. I noticed this was gone out of my camera bag when we got to Japan, but nobody told me anything about it in the US. And it was less than 3oz, so the only reason they could have taken it is because it wasn't in the plastic bag. But I'm not sure I didn't just lose it, because nobody even said to me "we're taking this".

... but that's precisely where I don't see the sense in the bag: either you can see through the bottle (and recognize whether it seems 'home bottled'), or you can not - with or without the bag.

That's the one and only reason I've heard so far that makes any sense...
