recomendations to Tourists

Wednesday, 25 July 2007
Holidaymakers are being advised to arrive at airports early to avoid delays which could be caused by enforced security measures.

According to the Department of Transport, tourists should be aware of various restrictions about what they can take on board as airports prepare for their busiest time of the year.

Aviation minister Jim Fitzpatrick said: "By arriving at the airport prepared for the security checks, passengers can avoid the delays and frustrations of those who do not.

"These restrictions are necessary to ensure that flights are safe and secure and the restrictions on liquids are in place at every airport across Europe as well as in countries such as the US and Australia."

Currently passengers are only allowed to take one item of cabin baggage, which can be no larger than 56 x 45 x 26 cm, through security. However, holidaymakers are advised to check with their air operator beforehand to see if any stricter regulations on bag size are in place.

Meanwhile, travellers can also carry liquids in containers weighing up to 100 ml, which must fit into a small, clear, re-sealable plastic bag including items such as creams, gels, sprays, lotions, make up and toothpastes.

The department added that containers larger than 100 ml such as drinks bottles are strictly not permitted.

Earlier this month, the Civil Aviation Authority advised tourists to be aware of the restrictions on taking "dangerous goods" onboard aircraft.
