NEW EU SECURITY RULES AT AIRPORTS  [The new rules apply from  November 6, 2006]

A BRIEF GUIDE TO HELP YOU

To protect you against the new threat of liquid explosives, the European Union (EU) has adopted new security rules that restrict the amount of liquids that you can take through security checkpoints. They apply to all passengers departing from airports in the EU whatever their destination.

This means that, at security check points, you and your 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 from Monday, 6 November 2006 at al airports in the EU and in Norway, Iceland and
Switzerland until further notice.


WHAT IS NEW ?

While packing You are only allowed to take small quantities of liquids in your hand luggage. These liquids must be in individual containers with a maximum capacity of 100 milliliters each. You must pack these containers in one transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of not more than one liter capacity per passenger

- At the airport

To help screeners detect liquids, you must:

  •  present al liquids caried to the screeners at security checkpoints for examination;
  •  take of your jacket and/or coat. They will be screened separately whilst you are screened;
  • remove laptop computers and other large electrical devices from your hand luggage. They will
    be screened separately whilst you are screened.


    Liquids include:
  •  contents of pressurized containers, including shaving foam, other foams
  •  water and other drinks, soups, syrups and deodorants
  •  creams, lotions and oils• pastes, including toothpaste
  •  perfumes, liquid-solid mixtures
  •  sprays,  mascara,  gels, including hair and shower gels any other item of similar consistency

 WHAT DOES NOT CHANGE ?

You can still:

  •  pack liquids in bags that you check in – the new rules only a affect hand luggage;
  • carry in your hand luggage medicines and dietary requirements, including baby foods, for use
    during the trip. You may be asked for proof that they are needed;
  • buy liquids such as drinks and perfumes either in an EU airport shop when located beyond the
    point where you show your boarding pas or on board an aircraft operated by an EU airline.
    If they are sold in a special sealed bag, do not open it before you are screened – otherwise the contents
    may be confiscated at the checkpoint. (If you transfer at an EU airport, do not open the bag before screening at your airport of transfer, or at the last one if you transfer more than once).

    Al these liquids are additional to the quantities in the re-sealable plastic bag mentioned above.

    If you have any doubts, please ask your airline or travel agent in advance of travel.
    Please be courteous and cooperate with airport security and airline staff.
