THE ITEMS YOU CAN AND CAN’T TAKE ON A PLANE.

From hair straighteners to spoons, check out
our list of things you can and can't take aboard ( istock )
From corkscrews to drones, don’t get caught out at the airport.

As Australia directs all international air passengers (and some domestic travellers) to declare powder items at security, we take a look at what you can and can't take on an aeroplane according to the UK government.

Some items aren’t allowed in your hand luggage and some aren’t allowed anywhere on the aircraft. If you’re unsure, don’t risk your property being dumped unceremoniously at security and check with the airline or airport prior to departure.

Ashes
Ashes can be carried in either your hand or hold luggage, but must be sealed in an outer box or case and accompanied by the relevant documentation, such as a Certificate of Death issued by an authority from the country of departure. Ashes will need to be screened along with any other items, however. It’s a good idea to inform an airport official that you are carrying ashes before screening begins.
