Restricted items

This is the image description.

For the comfort, safety, and security of other passengers on the flight, passengers are not allowed to carry restricted items in their carry-on baggage. To minimise inconvenience, you are advised to check in or put these items in your checked-in baggage instead:

  • Knives (including hunting knives, swords, and pocket knives) 
  • Scissors and any other sharp/bladed objects (e.g. ice-pick, nail clippers) considered illegal by local law 
  • Weapons such as whips, nan-chakus, baton, or stun gun 
  • Hand-cuffs
  • Sporting equipment such as baseball/cricket bats, golf clubs, hockey sticks, billiard cues 
  • Devices with spillable batteries

While there is no restriction on the carriage of Knee Defenders or similar devices, their use on board the aircraft is strictly prohibited. The use of such a device to prevent a seat in front from reclining alters the intended recline function of the Economy Class seat and interferes with the inflight experience SilkAir wishes to provide our passengers. For their comfort, all passengers may recline their seats during permitted phases of a flight. During meal service, cabin crew will as a courtesy, request for Economy Class seats to be put upright in consideration of the dining comfort of all passengers.

Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, personal vaporisers or electronic nicotine delivery systems are only allowed in carry-on baggage where permitted by the applicable local laws. However, the use of e-cigarettes in the cabin is prohibited at all times.


Please note that from 1 Feb 2018, it will be illegal to buy, use and possess imitation tobacco products (such as e-cigarettes) in Singapore.

Baggage checks in the United States of America (USA)

The US Transportation Security Adminstration (TSA) stipulates that passengers travelling into and out of US commercial airports, can no longer access their checked baggage once baggage screening is completed. Hence, we recommend you to remove all items that you will need onboard, before checking in your baggage.
 

TSA advises passengers to leave their baggage unlocked or use a TSA accepted and recognised lock to facilitate the search process. TSA will not be liable for any damage caused to locked bags if they are opened for screening. For bags opened during screening, the screeners will close it with a tamper-evident seal and insert a notice in your bag to inform you that the bag has been opened.
 

As this procedure is governed by US legislation and beyond the control of the airline, we regret that we cannot be held liable for damage or loss of items from the baggage. You may visit the Transportation Security Administration website for further information.
 

If you are travelling from airports that serve as the last points of departure to the United States, the TSA may require passengers to undergo enhanced security measures. Such checks may include the inspection of your Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) prior to carrying them onboard.

  1. Laptops
  2. Tablets
  3. E-readers
  4. Camera
  5. Portable DVD players
  6. Electronic game units larger than a smartphone
  7. Travel printers/scanners
