Liquid Duty-Free Items

Postby KarenS » Fri Sep 01, 2006 8:14 am

From an article in the Chicago Tribune:
"Many airports around the world are still putting severe or total restrictions on what can be sold to U.S.-bound passengers. The industry is anxiously awaiting an easing of those restrictions, but has to take its lead from the [U.S. Transportation Safety Administration]."

The most recent notice on the agency's Web site (tsa.gov) says that most liquids, gels, lotions and other items of similar consistency will not be allowed in carry-on bags; they must be packed in checked luggage.

"Duty-free items are permitted if delivered directly onto the aircraft," the notice says. "However, passengers making connections from international to domestic flights must transfer the items to their checked bag before boarding their flight."
