The restrictions will not be applicable to baggage holds, however, provided the airliner carrying the passengers and the cargo allows for it, according to reports.
All passengers will be allowed to carry a single, sealed, transparent, one-liter plastic bag to contain the liquids, gels and spray products they would like to bring along although no products larger than a volume of 100 milliliters will be permitted inside the bag.
The new regulations will cover all liquids, including water, syrup and drinks, as well as creams, lotions, cologne, perfume, lubricants and all kinds of makeup material, including mascara. Shaving foam, deodorants, toothpaste and other paste-like materials; non-solid foodstuffs such as jam, honey, yoghurt, molasses, sauces and jelly; as well as contact lens liquids, shampoo, sprays and aerosols are also included within the scope of the new regulations. Authorities will permit exceptions, including baby food and milk for passengers traveling with their infants, as well as prescription drugs for passengers with a medical condition, provided they keep their medicine inside its original packaging.
