Britain: Liquids Restrictions Eased at Airports

A three-month-old ban that prevented passengers from carrying liquids aboard flights originating at British airports will be relaxed beginning Monday, and passengers will be allowed to carry small quantities of toothpaste, mascara, hair gel and other toiletries as long as they are contained in a clear, resealable plastic bag. The new rules are also being introduced across the European Union. The rules restrict each item to 100 milliliters, about three ounces, and containers must be brought to the airport in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag no more than a liter, or quart, in capacity. The no-liquids restrictions were put in effect in August, after the police uncovered what they said was a plot to blow up trans-Atlantic airliners using liquid explosives. More information on the new rules is at www.dft.gov.uk. Full Story
