prohibited items in hand luggage

The European Union has drawn up a list of items that travelers are not allowed to carry on an aircraft in hand and/or in checked luggage for security reasons (e.g. guns, baseball bats, toy guns, sprays, knives or razor blades, corkscrews, explosives, fireworks and acids).

Prohibited items on an aircraft in hand or checked luggage

The European Union has drawn up a list of items that travelers are not allowed to carry on an aircraft for security reasons, which, therefore, concerns Italian airports.

The list of prohibited items in the cabin of an aircraft is extensive and includes, for example, the following articles: guns, firearms, stunning devices, objects with a sharp point or sharp edge, workmen’s tools, baseball bats, toy guns, sprays, knives or razor blades, scissors, corkscrews, blunt instruments, explosives and incendiary substances and devices.

The list of prohibited items in the checked luggage includes, for example, all explosives and incendiary substances and devices, fireworks, ammunition, and acids.

For any further information or doubt concerning what travelers can (surfboards, bicycles, skis, etc.) or cannot (see above) transport on an aircraft, we suggest asking the airline company of interest, the information center of the airport, or the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) before reaching the airport.
