There should be no problem about bringing the pie in to Cyprus but getting it out of UK I just do not know. Looking at UK airport regulations the restrictions apply to liquids and gels and I hope the pie is not in that state but some do have lots of lovely tasty jelly but pork pie jelly is surely not a gel?.

Hi, we always take food on to aircraft to eat instead of the airline food so I an't see why you can't take a pork pie. My hubby loves sausage sandwiches and we take them with us for the journey. We have taken a cooler bag in our hold luggage with sausages and bacon and everything has been ok. Have a nice holiday. barbara
