EU lifts liquids ban on transferring passengers

7-Apr-2011 1:23 PM

European Travel Retail Council (ETRC) announced the European Union has passed legislation lifting restrictions on passengers carrying duty free liquids, aerosols and gels purchased at non-EU airports and airlines (DFNI Online, 06-Apr-2011). The new legislation comes into effect on 29-Apr-2011. Under the new rules, all passengers travelling into Europe from all non-EU airports and transferring onwards will be allowed to travel without having liquids, aerosols and gels confiscated, providing the goods are packed in ICAO sealed tamper-evident bags.
