The following is a guide to the security requirements for all passengers departing from UK airports and also provides some advice that will help passengers pass through the security search point as quickly as possible.

Key points to remember:

Each passenger is restricted to carrying only one item of cabin baggage through the airport search point with a maximum size of 56cm x 45cm x 25cm. Other bags, such as handbags, may be carried within the single item of cabin baggage.

With effect from 7 January 2008, the one item restriction will no longer apply at certain airports. (Visit their website and click on the appropriate point for further information on this subject see the link below)

Where possible, put all liquid items in your hold baggage. This includes water and other drinks, creams, sprays, pastes and gels.

Liquids, gels and aerosols are only allowed in individual containers of 100ml. All containers must fit comfortably in one, transparent, re-sealable bag no larger than 20cm x 20cm (e.g. a freezer bag).

Don t leave anything to chance, you will not be able to change the regulations because you have a medical condition, transporting medical equipment or because you did not know the rules. It s your responsibility to know what is permitted and what s not prior to setting out for the airport of before booking your holiday/flight. Airport Security is there to protect all travellers so bear that in mind when you preparing to travel.
