EU Sets New Duty-Free Rules for Passengers Transiting Europe

Effective November 6, the European Union is enacting new restrictions on duty-free goods carried by passengers on flights from non-EU airports who are transferring at an EU airport, according to the Pacific Asia Travel Association. Passengers carrying any liquids, pastes or gels in containers larger than 100 ml confiscated at security checkpoints, even if they were bought at licensed duty-free shops at the originating airport. The rule also applies to items travelers purchase while in flight bound for an EU airport if they're aboard a non-EU carrier.
