UK airports ‘to scrap 100ml liquid rule in hand luggage by 2024’

Airports are set to scrap the 100ml rule on liquids in hand luggage by 2024, according to reports.

For the first time in 16 years passengers will be able to carry a regular size bottle of water, for example, in their hand luggage.

The Times reports that passengers will no longer have to empty their bags at security screenings, meaning laptops, makeup and drinks can all stay in your hand luggage.
