EU Tightens Flight Security

28 September 2006

European Union countries have agreed to restrict the amount of liquids that airline passengers can take on board, as well as the size of hand luggage.

The tighter security measures have been drawn up after an alleged plot to blow up transAtlantic flights to the United States, using liquid chemicals, was uncovered last month.

The new rules will limit passengers to carry no more than 100 milliliters of liquid per container.

All liquid containers will also have to be carried in a clear plastic bag.

Hand luggage must measure no more than fifty-six by forty-five by twenty-five centimetres.
