Rules for taking own food on planes for Tui, Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2 and British Airways flights

By Simon Meechan & Aaliyah Rugg

Millions of holidaymakers will be gearing up for their first trip abroad in three years following travel restrictions during the height of the pandemic.

Whether you are flying with top airlines like Tui, Easyjet, Ryanair or British Airways, you may already be looking at ways to keep the costs down. One way to avoid forking out is to bring your own food, either from home or bought in the departure lounge, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Whether you grab a meal deal at an airport store or take foods through security, many airlines actually have their own rules regarding taking food onto a plane. There are also rules on the types of food you can take into other countries, for example you cannot take fresh meat or dairy into the EU.

EasyJet

You can bring food on board, as long as any liquids (brought from home) such as soup or custard are in clear containers of no more than 100ml. Non-alcoholic drinks, including hot drinks, can be brought on board if they were bought in the departure lounge.

Ryanair

'Feel free' to bring your own food and soft drinks on board, Ryanair says. However, unlike EasyJet, hot drinks are not welcome due to safety concerns, nor is your own alcohol allowed to be consumed during the flight.

Jet2

Hot drinks and hot food are not allowed to be brought onto Jet2's planes. But the rules do not say anything about not bringing cold food, such as sandwiches, from home or the departure lounge.

Jet2's rules state that customers are not allowed to bring food on board if it is "prohibited from being carried by the applicable laws, regulations or orders of any country to be flown from, to or over". Passengers also cannot bring "items which in our reasonable opinion are unsuitable for carriage by reason of their weight, size or character or which are fragile or perishable or which may affect the safety, health or comfort of other passengers or crew, this may include hot or strong smelling foods and drinks".

However, if you've got it through security, can fit it in your bag and it does not have a strong smell, you should be fine to bring your own cold food and snacks on board.

TUI

Passengers travelling with TUI can bring their own food on board. It advises passengers to bring "low-risk food such as pre-made sandwiches and snacks that can be eaten cold".

British Airways

Passengers can take solid foods like sandwiches, biscuits, fruit, nuts, etc, onto the plane. Liquids like drinks, soups, sauces, jams and jellies must be in clear containers with a capacity of no more than 100ml.

British Airways adds: "You can buy duty-free liquids, gels or cream products of more than 100ml from airport shops or on board, provided that they have been sealed at the point of purchase in a Security Tamper Evident Bag with the receipt inside."

Holiday-goers have been issued stark warnings over the last few weeks as passengers face 'chaotic' queues in airports right across the UK. This has also been seen at Leeds Bradford Airport, with huge queues spotted around the building, sparking travel advice on when best to arrive.

A LBA spokesperson has issued advice to holidaymakers looking to travel from the airport soon with people told to arrive three hours before departure in a bid to minimise any issues in security. A spokesperson for the airport said they are facing longer queue times for the security process during peak times, this is between 4am-8am and 1pm-4pm.
