Scotland's airports make liquid ban plea


Scotland's airport managers have issued a joint appeal for passengers to prepare for new rules on carrying liquids on flights. They have warned that the changes are not a return to pre-August rule on carrying liquids in hand luggage and are advising people to arrive prepared.

BAA Scotland, owner of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen Airports, has joined forces with Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd, Infratil Airports Europe, which operates Prestwick Airport, and Dundee City Council, operators of Dundee Airport, to ask passengers to comply with new security restrictions.

The ban on taking drinks and toiletries through security checks in UK and EU airports is to be relaxed tomorrow. However, the change means that passenger will be limited to 100ml per container and no more containers than would fit in a one-litre plastic bag. It is not a return to the situation prior to the August terror scare, when more relaxed rules were in place.

More than 500,000 clear plastic bags will be distributed to passengers at Scottish airport over the next few weeks. Extra staff will also be drafted in to help and leaflets and posters will be distributed throughout the terminals. But the airports are telling travellers to 'arrive early and arrive prepared'.

To help combat waiting times, people checking in luggage are encouraged to pack any liquids in their suitcase.

Full details of the new rules are available on the DfT website on this page.
