The new rules within the EU state that liquids that are in your carry on luggage must have a maximum weight of 100 ml. You can only bring one plastic bag of liquids, so if they do not fit then transfer them to your stow away luggage. Danish law states that the bag must be a ‘transparent, re-sealable bag with a maximum capacity of one liter. The closing mechanism must be an integral part of the bag. You may for instance use re-sealable “freezer bags”, available from many major supermarkets.’ As long as you adhere to these rules, you will be able to take your liquids on board.
