New airport regulations on liquids in hand luggage
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The head of Rafik Hariri International Airport, Daniel al-Hibi, warned Tuesday that the new EU rules for air passengers carrying liquids, aerosols and gels had taken effect at France’s Charles de Gaulle Airport. 

Following the development of Liquid Explosive Detection Systems, the European Commission has revised the requirements for the screening of various items at U.K. and EU airports, including duty free items in sealed bags, medicine, baby food and other nonsolid items for specific dietary requirements. 

If carried outside the standard see-through 1 liter plastic bag, these items must be subjected to the LEDS. 

The new rule applies to both transferring and direct customers and came into effect on Jan. 31. 

Previous restrictions to other liquids, aerosols and gels carried in hand baggage are to continue, i.e. the maximum capacity for containers is 100 ml and all items must be presented within the 1 liter plastic bag.
