Some Liquids Allowed on Planes

Posted on Sep 25, 2006

Thanks to new regulations, small travel-size portions are now OK. As far as we can tell, however, snakes are still verboten.


The government is partially lifting its ban against carrying liquids and gels onto airliners, as long as they are purchased from secure airport stores, and will also permit small, travel-size toiletries brought from home, officials said Monday.

A total ban on such products, instituted after a plot to bomb jets flying into the United States was foiled, is no longer needed, said Transportation Security Administration chief Kip Hawley.

“We now know enough to say that a total ban is no longer needed from a security point of view,” Hawley told a news conference at Reagan National Airport.
