New guidelines will be followed by passengers leaving from London-City Airport (LCY) when they pass through security.

For the first time since March 4, 2006, passengers will be permitted to pass through airport security with fluids, gels, and pastes that measure more than 100ml starting on that date.

Also, passengers can bring up to two liters of liquids with them without having to divide their toiletries into see-through containers or remove electrical goods from their hand luggage.

The new procedures are made possible by the sophisticated scanners that London City Airport recently installed.

With the use of the C3 Scanners, staff members may check passengers’ baggage from every angle by taking high-resolution 3D photos of the bags.

Since UK authorities stopped a terrorist group’s intention to blow up planes using liquid explosives, strict regulations around liquids have been in place.

The 100ml restriction was raised to two liters at Teesside International Airport (MME) in March 2023, making it the first airport in the UK to do so.

Following years of thorough testing, the new technology will soon be implemented at other London airports like Gatwick and Heathrow.

Alison FitzGerald, the chief operating officer at London City Airport, told the BBC that the staff had received fresh training in the new technology.

“The level of processing now through the X-ray is even more secure than it was previously and the machine has the ability to differentiate to between a non-dangerous and a dangerous liquid,” the COO said. ”The whole process is quicker on the basis that previously you needed to empty your bag and put that in multiple trays whereas now it’s one bag in one tray and you don’t need to take everything out.”
