I'm flying from auckland to wellington later today, but am unclear on whether there are limits on liquids in carry-on? they seem to be very well explained for international flights, but not so much for domestic, and it's been a while since i last flew domestic. Anybody have any ideas?

At a guess there's no limit, or at least they're not enforcing one. My last few domestic flights have had no checks at all; just scan the ticket at the gate and walk on through.

I am sure they don't check domestic just a bag scan but I would not advise taking a 20 litres

The liquids restriction is for international travel. No problems taking bottles of water and/or your favourite Scotch in your carry on.

There may be some limits that start raising concerns, but there is no publicised limit. It's certainly not the international rules.

Great, thanks, I thought that was probably the case - I just want to take a normal size toothpaste and the mrs wants to take a perfume, etc and didn't want to get caught out if the limit was 100ml :)

Fog in Wellington might stop you from going there today :-)

Major routes are flying, with some delays, small planes seem to be cancelled. Fog is predicated to lift late morning and it'll be a super hot day afterwards.

Fog is clearing now, as others have said there are no rules about liquids for domestic flights, just make sure your hand luggage isn't over the limit for the airline you are flying.

Next time fly to Paraparaumu.

The prop planes don't seem to be affected by fog very much.

/OT

Depends on visibility (and ILS version in place). ILS landing requires a particular level to be clear before they can use it (like 200ft - ILS Cat2 is 100ft and CAT3 is 50ft) whereas since the Dash-8/ATRs usually have CAT1 and a lower cruise and speed and can be IFR as long as they can see it they can land on it :)

Takeoff usually less hampered as you have space to fly into. Compared to landing when there is something solid to hit

Whats on in the next day or so?

The welly fog was at the southern end of the runway for most of the afternoon. Planes could land happily, and then take off into a wall of fog. AFAIK the domestic jet flights are the only ones you get screened for with metal detector, and bags scanned. They don't seem to worried about liquids.

With regard to the ILS at WLG the minima is 300 ft onto the southerly runway and is 430 ft onto the northerly runway. The limit is the same for all aircraft for Wellington as it is terrain limited. There are different requirements for different types of aircraft departing Wellington depending on aircraft capability.

Cheers Matt.
