U.K. Reimposes Liquid Rules At Airport Security After Sudden “Temporary” Government U-Turn

The U.K. is eliminating liquid rules for airport security. Some airports, where new CT scanners have been rolled out, no longer enforce limits on bringing liquids into the terminal. The rest, such as London Heathrow, are working towards this under government directive.

However the country’s Department of Transport abruptly announced without explanation that the 100ml liquid rule for carry on bags will be temporarily reinstated, so regional airports that have already dropped it will have to start enforcing liquid bans again Sunday morning.

This change affects Newcastle, Leeds Bradford, London City, Aberdeen, Southend, and Teesside airports – although it could also affect the coming rollout of a detente in the War on Water at larger airports as well. (Birmingham Airport has the new CT equipment but still enforces the 100ml rule because of slot regulatory approvals.)
