Airport security: 100 ml rule on liquids remains

EU Transport Commissioner answers a parliamentary act

The maximum limit of 100 milliliters on liquids that passengers can put in their hand luggage when travelling by plane remains. The European Commission announced this in recent days and does not plan to lift these restrictions. In short, customers will not be able to bring with them bottles of water, perfumes, medicines and creams whose volume of contents exceeds the limit. Yet, there are those who protest against this measure.

"Today, 18 years later, it is important to ask ourselves whether this measure should be reviewed", we read in the text of the parliamentary act filed by MEP Stefania Zambelli (EPP). This is the response of the European Commissioner for Transport, Adina Valean: "Liquid explosives continue to represent a threat to civil aviation", therefore "safety measures to counter this threat must therefore be maintained". In any case "we are collaborating with Member States and airports to introduce innovative technologies at airports".

The rule imposing a maximum limit on liquids of 100 ml on board aircraft was introduced in 2006 as a response to possible terrorist attacks. In recent years there has been discussion about the possibility of raising the limit to two litres, which only airports that have new generation security scanners will be able to do; for others the maximum limit remains.
