We recommend that you pack all essential medication in your carry-on baggage, or at least enough to last one week, so that you can access it if you are unexpectedly separated from your checked baggage at any point in your travels.
Medication should have a professionally printed label that identifies the medication, or a manufacturer’s name or pharmaceutical label. Security or customs officers may request proof of the need for medication.
If you need to carry hypodermic needles on board, please ensure you declare this at the screening point and, where possible, provide documentation or identification to confirm your medical condition.
