There are many restrictions to obey when moving through the airport, but one that seems to frustrate people the most is the requirement that liquids you bring onboard your flight can be no more than 100ml. Well that’s all set to change in one London airport!

A terrorist plot involving liquid bombs was thwarted in 2006, which is the reason the restriction was originally put in place, but it has been the torment of many travellers‘ travels ever since adding time and stress to a travellers journey in airports.
But now with the introduction of modern technology in airport security, the rule is on its way out. Airports have been given until June 2024 to install CT scanners, which give more precise information about what is in people’s baggage.

Due to the scanners, there are less limitations on carrying computers and other electronic devices in hand luggage meaning corporate flyers can make work trips much easier with less restrictions.
The liquid container allowed is increasing under the new regulations from a meagre 100ml to a tremendous two litres and flyers will also not have to split their assortment of lotions, cosmetics, and other items into separate clear plastic bags.
The move is intended to reduce waiting times, and according to Robert Sinclair, chief of London City Airport, passengers will welcome the adjustments. ‘”The new lanes will not only cut hassle but also queuing times, which I know passengers will love.”
Transport secretary Mark Harper said the change will do away with the ‘tiny toiletry’ faff at airports and should hopefully result in ‘streamlining cabin bag rules at airports while enhancing security’.
The technology increase that is offered by CT scanners is substantial and should make things both safer and easier for all travellers. We don’t need telling twice… who has the suncream?
