EU Regulations & Shopping

Passenger Update: Liquid, gel and paste purchases at EU Airports


On November 6, 2006, a number of new Security regulations became effective at all EU airports.

Shopping at The Loop remains largely unaffected and no limit applies to items purchased in the shops located after security check. Some exceptions apply regarding the packing of liquid, gel and paste purchases to transfer passengers and same-day return passengers.

Please see details below:

  • Transfer passengers and same-day return passengers
  • Goods bought by transfer passengers or by passengers on the outward leg of a same-day return journey will be placed in sealed bags which will be recognised as secure within all EU (and EEA) airports.
  • All liquid, gel and paste purchases will be placed in a clear plastic Travel Value bag and sealed at the point of purchase. The receipt must remain clearly visible. This bag must not be opened until final destination is reached. Opening or tampering with this sealed bag may result in confiscation at security check.
  • Passengers not returning on the same day
  • Passengers not returning on the same day need to check liquid/gel items over 100ml into Hold Baggage

USA and Canada Passengers

Due to restrictions on US bound flights, passengers travelling from Dublin Airport via Shannon Airport on a transatlantic flight must do their Duty Free shopping at Shannon.
At Shannon Airport all purchases of Duty Free goods for passengers flying directly to the USA and Canada will be delivered to the boarding gate for collection as passengers board their aircraft. 
Airport staff are available to answer any questions with regard to these arrangements at the cash point.
