Here, you’ll find guidelines for carry-on baggage and other items, and the use of such items onboard the aircraft.
Most travelers can bring on board one full-size carry-on bag and one personal item (handbag, umbrella, camera, etc.).
Carry-on baggage is limited to what can be stored in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you. It cannot exceed these limits:
All liquids, aerosols, and gels (LAGs), must be carried in containers with a capacity no larger than 3.4 oz or 100 ml each.
Containers with a larger capacity, even if the content are less than 3.4 oz., must be placed in the checked baggage.
Liquids, aerosols and gels include drinks, creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, sprays, shampoos, shaving foams, aerosols, pastes (such as toothpaste), semisolid materials, and other similar items.
Containers must be placed in a transparent, resealable plastic bag with a volume no larger than one quart (one liter). The containers must fit into the bag and the bag must be completely closed. Each passenger is permitted to carry on only one such bag.
Some countries/regions may restrict other items in addition to those below from being carried on board and checked in. See Airport and City Information for more information.
Exceptions to Liquids Rules
Medications, baby milk and baby food, and food for special dietary needs can be carried on board without placing them in a transparent plastic bag. These are limited to the amount required during the flight.
Folding strollers, portable cradles, and child seats can be checked in free of charge as long as they are for the use of the traveler who checks them.
Baby strollers can be brought on board only if they fall within the above size regulations when folded.
If you need to travel with medication, medical equipment or devices, such as CPAP machines, or hearing aids that emit radio waves, please contact the ANA Disability Desk in advance to confirm if the item is permitted onboard.
Note: Scissors, even those that are part of medical equipment, cannot be carried on board.
Please store carry-on baggage in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you to ensure a safe journey. Leaving baggage where it might hinder an emergency evacuation such as in the aisle or near the emergency exits is prohibited by law. Passengers seated where there is no seat in front of them are always required to keep the area around their feet free of baggage.
When storing your baggage in the overhead compartment, please make sure everything is stored neatly. Baggage that is not secured properly could fall out and injure you or other passengers.
Smoking and/or the use of fire in all seats, including the restrooms, is strictly prohibited. If a fire is started and the fire detector is activated, the aircraft will need to turn back to the gate or make an emergency landing at a nearby airport.
E-cigarettes, Non-combusted cigarettes should be carried on the aircraft, but they cannot be used onboard. They cannot be in checked baggage.
There may be occasions where passengers will not be allowed to take these items on board due to country rules and regulations. Please see Restricted and Banned Items for details.
Electronic devices that emit radio waves (including cell phones, laptops and electronic gaming consoles) are not permitted to be used for communication from the time the doors close before departure to the time the aircraft arrives at the destination gate.
Please set your device to airplane mode (sometimes called standalone mode, offline mode or flight mode), which blocks the sending and receiving of radio waves for functions that include phone calls, emails, text messages, and internet access.
The cabin attendants will make announcements to notify passengers when they can and cannot use these items.
Phones Requiring Special Caution, Such as Cell Phones for Children
Some phones turn on periodically to send their position even when the power is turned off. Please turn the power off completely to assure it does not interfere with aircraft function.
Connections between Bluetooth devices (e.g., wireless headphones) and connections between Wi-Fi devices (electronic game consoles) are permitted at all times as long as the device is set to airplane mode.
Note that since wireless communication is restricted to that occurring within the aircraft, connecting to mobile Wi-Fi routers or public wireless LAN is prohibited.
