first_imgCan I take laptops, hairdryers and other electrical items on board?Your laptop, hair straighteners, and travel razor are, generally speaking, allowed on board in the cabin.

It is also the case for tear gas, compressed gas, cleaning products, and fire extinguishers and other “chemicals and toxic substances”. And that includes peroxide, so don’t bring your hair colour with you to Malaga. Rockets and fireworks are also banned in the cabin, in all forms.
