Rules relaxed on airline cabin liquids


New rules come into force on Monday on what passengers can and can’t take on board planes within the EU. Air travellers must pack all liquids, gels and creams into a transparent resealable plastic bags with a one-litre capacity. This will be the permitted hand-luggage and must be presented at security checkpoints.

Rene Brun is the Director of Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris; “It’s very important that passengers get ready at home before they come to the airport and that they put all liquids in their check-in baggage, except for indispensable items which we have indicated, that can be carried in a bag.”

Duty-free shoppers will still be able to buy bottles which will be put into the plastic bags in the shop. The rules comes 3 months after British police claimed to have foiled a plot to use liquid explosives to bomb a flight destined for the US.
