transiting Frankfurt, are Duty-Free liquids from first airport allowed?

Jump to last reply

I plan to fly from Amsterdam to SFO and change planes in Frankfurt. I always buy Duty Free goods like whiskey and gin. I can take the duty free goods right on to the plane in Amsterdam. But can I do that when I change planes in Frankfurt? Do I have to go through security there? Do they allow liquids purchased at a different duty free shop (Amsterdam) to be carried onto the plane at the transiting airport (Frankfurt)? Or will I have to exit and buy a special suitcase, pack the liquor in it, check it in, and then go through security again?

I brought duty free liquors into the USA with a final destination of SFO and changed planes in Philadelphia. I had to go through security in Philly and they would not allow the liquor bottles to go through----I had to exit and buy a small suitcase, go through security, and check it as baggage. So I hope I can avoid that in Frankfurt.
