Cabin Bag Rules Change, With 2 Litre Bottles Allowed On Board

Passengers going through Jersey Airport can take more liquids on board as new security equipment goes live.

Travellers can now take containers with up to two litres of liquids - way above the previous 100ml limit.

There is also no longer a limit on how many of the two-litre containers can be taken through. Old rules restricted passengers to up to one litre in total.

Head of Security Maria Le Tiec says she's pleased the two new scanners are live in time for the summer season:

"Work will continue to install the remaining X-ray machine, which should go live mid-August. Full body scanners are scheduled for introduction by October 2023.

We will be erecting signage to guide passengers through the new layout and will issue further updates as the work progresses."

Electronics like laptops and tablets are also able to stay in cabin bags as they are screened thanks to the new technology, but airport officials say that only one device at a time can be screened in a bag.

Bosses also say that passengers should check with airports they are transiting through or returning from as not all have relaxed their rules.

All Channel Islands and UK airports have been given until June 2024 to install the enhanced technology.
