EU Regulates Liquids on Flights

The European Union has adopted new security rules that restrict the amount of liquids passengers can take through security checkpoints.

Starting Monday, November 6th passengers will only be allowed to have 1dl of liquid with them.

The new rules apply to all passengers departing from airports in the EU whatever their destination.

This means that, at security checkpoints, travellers and their hand luggage must be checked for liquids in addition to other prohibited articles.

However, the new rules do not limit the liquids that you can buy at shops located beyond the point where you show your boarding pass or on board an aircraft operated by an EU airline.

The new rules apply at all airports in the EU and in Norway, Iceland and Switzerland until further notice.
