A clearer view into unchecked bags: the British Government will update rules on carry-on luggage, the "Times" and "BBC" report. The move is also expected to reduce queues at security checkpoints.
"We have just started the expansion of the security area in Terminal 3 which will have more CT scanners and have a (regulatory) deadline of mid-2024", Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye told the "Times". "By then the normal passenger experience will be that liquids stay in bags.”
In the wake of safety concerns, travelers have been limited to 100 ml containers of liquids in unchecked luggage that must fit in a transparent one liter bag since 2006.
Electronic devices - such as notebooks and tablet computers - still have to be presented to security officers. Passengers will be able to leave these items in their bags with the roll-out of advanced screening technology.
