What Liquids Can You Bring on a Delta Flight?

On flights operated by Delta or any other airline, the Transportation Security Administration of the Department of Homeland Security permits each passenger to carry on a quart-sized, sealed plastic bag containing liquids in containers weighing less than 3.4 ounces. The Transportation Security Administration allows bigger volumes of liquids if they are prescriptions or food for infants or children. If the liquids are not hazardous or restricted products, passengers may pack larger quantities of liquids in their checked baggage.

Included among the carry-on liquids that must be contained in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces are mouthwash, shampoo, liquid soap, lotions, and gels. Both nonprescription and prescription drugs are exempt from the size restriction. Included among the exempt liquid items for children are breast milk, formula, juice, baby food, and teething supplies. Any liquid items exempt from inspection may be subject to additional screening. After passing through security checkpoints and entering the airport, passengers may purchase bigger liquids, such as bottled water, from duty-free shops and bring them on board the aircraft.

There is no restriction on the amount of liquids travellers may pack in their checked baggage. However, they cannot carry any prohibited items on the TSA’s list. This consists of gel paints, spray paints, tear gas, gasoline, and other fuels. Also included are chlorine, bleach, and batteries with internal liquids that can leak.
