Liquid restrictions {Carry On} in Africa Question

Jump to last reply

We are flying from South Africa to Zambia and then Botswana back to South Africa. Are there restrictions on LAG? [100 ml and 1 litre plastic baggie]? I know there are none for {internal domestic} flights within South Africa but wondered about flights between these countries. I see "overseas" and "international" mentioned but not sure they are used interchangeably per the quote from SAA website:


I see this:
If you are travelling overseas, you will need to follow the new international security regulations that limit the quantity of liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) in your hand luggage. Please make sure that the liquids you carry on board are packaged and transported in the following manner:
Liquids, gels and aerosols must be kept in containers of 100ml each.
They must be packed in a 20x20cm transparent, re-sealable plastic bag.
Only one bag is allowed per passenger, and it must be shown at airport security.
Exemptions will be made for medications, baby products, and special dietary requirements. Duty free purchases such as cigarettes, liquor and perfume are also permitted in reasonable quantities.
Please note: LAGs only apply to international flights.
