Liquids brought into the cabin must be in containers with a capacity no greater than 100 ml. We should add that these liquids must be carried in a sealable, transparent plastic bag of a capacity no greater than 1 l, and you may only carry 1 of these bags with you during the flight.
If your cabin baggage is damaged as a result of the actions of our staff, be assured that Turkish Airlines will meet the full cost of the damage. Our passengers are responsible for any other types of damage. We recommend that you read the legal regulations on this subject.
