DUBAI – Passengers travelling through airports in the Philippines are banned from carrying certain items in their check-in or carry-on luggage.
The Office for Transportation Security recently released a new list of prohibited items inside airports and airplanes in the Philippines.
“Security is non-negotiable. We urge the public to refrain from bringing items that are prohibited in the airport to avoid delays and inconvenience. If you are unsure whether an item is prohibited or not, you may contact us through email, SMS Hotline, or any of our official social media accounts. Or better yet, if it is not that important, we suggest that you just leave it at home,” said Under Secretary Arturo M. Evangelista.
According to the new list, the following items are banned in check-in and carry-on luggage:
Lighters (Disposable o non-disposable)
Corrosive substances (includes acid, battery acid, sulfuric acid, vinegar, muriatic acid)
Toxic and infectious materials (includes insect or animal repellant spray)
Flammable materials (includes paint, thinner, lighter refill, butane)
Hoverboards and similar items
