Six UK airports briefly restore 100ml liquid limit

Restriction came back to make adjustments to checkpoint systems, according to the Department of Transport.The UK six regional airports will temporarily restore limits on transporting liquids larger than 100ml, according to the Department for Transport.

The move will take effect at midnight on Sunday and will affect travelers traveling from London City, Aberdeen, Newcastle, Leeds Bradford, Southend, and Teesside airports.

All of the airports have Next Generation Security Checkpoints (NGSC) in place, allowing them to eliminate the rule. The high-tech CT scanners provide a 3D picture of what is inside passengers’ baggage.

The 100ml rule was implemented in 2006 in response to a thwarted terrorist attempt to blow up planes heading from London to the United States using homemade liquid explosives.

A representative for the Department for Transport stated that this temporary adjustment will only affect a limited number of passengers and will allow for additional enhancements to the new checkpoint systems.

“Most passengers will continue to face the same security checks.

“Passengers should continue to check security requirements with their departure airport before travelling.”
