In the UK, the rules will be in place at airports regarding carrying liquids and laptops in hand luggage simplification As of June 2024: Report Watchman Report what the government decided. This is a huge simplification after decades of hard and fast security rules.
Passengers passing through major airports in the UK will be able to carry up to 2 liters of liquids, significantly more than the 100ml previously allowed. Moreover, it will no longer be necessary to transport containers of liquids in transparent plastic bags and remove tablets and laptops from hand luggage at checkpoints.
The British Department of Transport has reported that new technology will be installed at major airports that will allow security officers to get more detailed pictures of what’s inside passengers’ bags.
Transportation Secretary Mark Harper Explain “Small personal hygiene items are ubiquitous at airport security checks, but that will all change. We are working to relax hand baggage rules at airports while simultaneously strengthening security.”
And again «by 2024, security technologies will be installed at major airports across the UK, which will allow to reduce waiting time, improve the travel experience for passengers and, above all, identify potential threats».
Currently, it is possible to carry liquids, aerosols and gels in hand baggage as long as they do not exceed the maximum volume of 100ml per single bottle, kept in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag with a capacity of not more than 1 liter per passenger. Exceptions are items such as medication, travel essentials (eg diabetic kits) and baby food, provided they are presented at security.
