Gradual changes to restrictions on liquids in hand luggage are being brought in from today.
- Certain duty free liquids - those coming from outside the EU and being transferred in EU airports to a connecting flight - can be carried through provided they are sealed in the security bag when bought.
- If the sealed bag is tampered with, passengers will need to produce a receipt.
- In future, medicines in bottles larger than a 100mls will simply need to be presented for screening before being allowed on board.
- Australia, Canada and the US will also screen duty free liquids sealed in security bags by 31 January as well.
