What’s your bag?
We understand that there are some things you just can’t do without. That’s why everyone who flies from Doncaster Sheffield Airport is allowed to bring one bag on the flight with them.
However, there’s only so much room in the overhead compartments so we’ve had to limit the size of this hand luggage to 56cm x 45cm x 25cm. That means you need to scrutinize what you’re packing and ask yourself: do I really need this on the flight?
What’s the deal with liquids?
For security purposes most liquids aren’t allowed on the plane with you. Cosmetics, sprays, pastes and gels should always be packed in your hold luggage.
If you do desperately need to bring any liquids through with you please make sure you put each in a clear 100ml container. This will then need to be presented to security in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm.

But I’m travelling with a baby!
Don’t worry. We want you and your little one to have a great time with us and we’ll do everything we can to make that possible. That includes helping get all items your airline has allowed you to take – such as pushchairs and car seats – safely onto the plane along with your most precious cargo and any milk, pouches and toys they need for the flight.
Can I carry baby milk?
Yes, in your hand luggage you can carry enough baby milk as is required for the duration of the journey to the destination/resort. Anything over and above this needs to go in your suitcase which is checked-in as hold luggage. Further information is available on the UK Government website – www.gov.uk/hand-luggage-restrictions/baby-food-and-baby-milk
What can I put in my suitcase?
Every airline has different restrictions on hold luggage. The best thing to do to avoid having to pay extra charges or throw things away at the airport is to pack sensibly and then weigh each case at home to make sure you haven’t exceeded your allowance.
When you’re packing you should also bear in mind that you’ll have to go through security checks. As a general rule of thumb you should avoid putting knives, firearms including toy guns or any kind of weapons or ammunition in your suitcase. Things that can explode like gas cartridges or lighter fuel plus paint, mercury and acid are also strictly off limits.
