Hand baggage restrictions to be lifted

AIRPORT SECURITY - HAND BAGGAGE RULES

With effect from 7 January 2008, the restriction previously imposed limiting hand baggage to one item per person will no longer apply at a number of UK airports. However, airlines may apply their own operational policies governing the number, size and weight of items which may be taken into the aircraft cabin. A guide to the security requirements for passengers and a list of airports where the one item restriction no longer applies can be found at www.dft.gov.uk/transportforyou/airtravel/airportsecurity.
