When it comes to bringing items through airport checkpoints, we have seen just about anything. Nigerians are lovers of “good food” and everyone has favourite foods from their towns and villages that they want to take abroad before acclimatising, or items from their destination that they want to bring back home.
However, there are certain standard items that are not allowed on commercial carriers globally.
Regulations for carry-on items and checked baggage vary depending on the item and whether it is brought into the cabin or checked in as luggage.
Passengers must realise that it is better to confirm if in doubt with the carrier in advance than to get to the airport with items that need to be re-arranged as check-in or cannot be transported at all.
Travelling by air can be stressful at times. As you plan to pay baggage fees and try to fit enough belongings into your luggage, you also need to make sure the items you pack are not prohibited on flights and are declared rightly.
