Hand sanitizer on a China flight?

Pretty sure no liquids allowed as carry on for domestic flights, and maybe 100ml or less for international flights


But what about my 50ml bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer?

Are any airlines allowing this kind of grenade as carry on?

Probably not. kkkkkkkkkk

But there is no Rule that I'm aware of to say that you can't soak several squares of paper towel in the sanitizer, then place them inside a zip-top plastic bag inside your luggage/carry-on to use when you wish agagagagag

I personally dealt with that... here's my story:

On the way to China, via Moscow, so dealing with Italian and Russian airlines, no issues. I had my 50ml bottle of hand sanitizer and they didn't even blink at it.

On the way out, leaving from Beijing, it was a big NO for the same bottle. Basically, if it has a flammable sign, it's not allowed on board, no matter how much you argue with them. Same thing happened with a travel-size deodorant spray that i travelled with multiple times through Beijing/Shanghai and was confiscated when i went through Luoyang.

so, your mileage will vary but the rule of thumb is avoid anything with flammable signs or find a way to remove/cover them.

Many of the small size sanitizers sold now don't have it. try and get those.
