Air travellers encouraged to adhere to security and safety procedures

Persons travelling via air are encouraged to always adhere to security and safety procedures to ensure hassle-free travel, said Royston Griffin, Senior Civil Aviation Officer within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Aviation.

One such procedure is the 3-1-1 liquid rule which states that each passenger must carry liquids, gels and aerosols in travel-size containers that are 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters. Each passenger is limited to one quart-size bag of liquids, gels and aerosols. Common travel items that must comply with the 3-1-1 liquids rule include toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, lotion and perfume.
