UK airports plan to remove restrictions on carrying liquids in hand luggage.
This will be possible with the introduction of special 3D scanners, similar to computed tomography, which will provide clearer three-dimensional images of the contents of luggage. Such 3D baggage scanners are currently being tested at London Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Old screening technologies in UK air harbors will be replaced by new ones by the summer of 2024.
Currently, you can carry liquids in containers up to 100 ml in hand luggage, their total volume should not exceed 1 liter per person.
This rule has been in effect since 2006 after a series of “liquid bomb” attacks were thwarted in the UK.
