Restrictions on carry-on baggage
Government and airport authorities set out restrictions on the items that can be included in your carry-on baggage or on your persons during a flight. It is your responsibility to check before departure for any restrictions applicable to your specific flights. These items must be packed in your checked baggage. If any of these items are detected in your carry-on baggage or you’re found to be carrying them, they will be removed and will not be returned.
The Australian Department of Infrastructure and Transport provide a list of restricted items for carriage on domestic and international flights to and from Australia.
Passengers carrying hypodermic needles will need to declare them at the screening point, with, where possible, documentation or identification confirming their medical condition. Medication should have a professionally printed label identifying the medication, or a manufacturer’s name or pharmaceutical label affixed.
Please contact Jetstar if you have a question.
