Airport 100ml liquid limits ‘to be AXED’: Hated rules that stop passengers taking large amounts of drinks and toiletries on board ‘will go at major UK airports by summer 2024 as improved scanners are installed’ report says

  • Passengers will have the ability to take over 100ml of liquids through airport security
  • Change is anticipated to be in place by summer 2024 as CT scanners are installed
  • Flyers may even now not must remove laptops from their bags at security
  • The rule was introduced in 2006 after failed terror attack at Heathrow

The limit for taking greater than 100ml of liquid through airport security will reportedly be ‘axed’ by summer 2024.

The principles which prevent passengers from taking containers of drinks and toiletries over 100ml on board flights will probably be gone on the UK’s major airports for the primary time since 2006.

Passengers may even now not need to remove laptops from hand luggage through airport security.

The change will probably be made possible because the country’s biggest airports have been told by the Department for Transport (DfT) to put in improved security CT scanners by the center of 2024, The Times reports.

This move should speed up queues at airport security because the longest delays are brought on by flyers not taking items out of their bags or carrying bottles of drink and toiletries over the allowed 100ml limit.

The present rules state that electronics akin to laptops and tablets needs to be faraway from cabin bags through security and that every one liquids should be in containers of 100ml or less and be held in a transparent plastic bag.

Liquid containers over 100ml were banned at airport security after a planned Al-Qaeda terrorist attack against seven planes departing Heathrow – using explosives which looked like soft drinks – was prevented in 2006.

If successful, it might have been the biggest Al-Qaeda attack against the West since 9/11.

Heathrow, Gatwick and Birmingham Airports are testing the brand new equipment, which scans passengers baggage in 3D – which provides a rather more detailed image to security officials in comparison with the present 2D scanners.

More CT scanners will probably be installed at the safety area of Heathrow’s Terminal 3, the airport’s chief executive John Holland-Kaye told The Times. 

He said they were ‘slowly rolling them out’ and that by mid-2024 the ‘normal passenger experience will probably be that liquids stay in bags’ through airport security.

The policy stays under review on the DfT based on officials but no official announcement has been made.

A DfT spokesperson said: ‘Passengers at UK airports must not carry liquid containers larger than 100ml through security, and each liquids and electronics needs to be taken out of cabin bags at airport security checkpoints.’
