Immediate changes to carry-on baggage

The United States Department of Homeland Security has instructed all airlines to apply new security measures for flights into and out of the United States.

Effective immediately, passengers cannot carry liquids and gels on to the aircraft. This includes beverages (including duty free purchases), shampoos, suntan lotions, creams, toothpaste, hair gels and other items of a similar consistency.

Excluded from the measures are baby formula or juice if a baby or small child is travelling, prescription medicine with a name that matches the name on the passenger's ticket and insulin and other non-prescription medicines.

All passenger footwear will also have to be screened prior to departure.

As a result of the changes, customers travelling on flights to and from the USA are asked to allow additional time for check-in.
