For anyone flying to FF next month - here is the latest info from BAA regarding items which can be taken on to the aircraft.

Airport security – new restrictions from 22 September21 September 2006

The Department for Transport has today announced a further relaxation in the security restrictions at UK airports, which will be implemented at all BAA airports from the start of business on Friday, 22 September 2006.

The revised security measures allow for:

an increase in the size of the hand baggage permitted onboard and
musical instruments to be taken onboard.
In addition, BAA will now be allowing passengers to take solid cosmetics in hand luggage.

This easing of restrictions is not a return to normal as the revised regulations will continue to have an impact on our airports' operations. All passengers will be subject to hand baggage restrictions and are asked to be patient while these additional security measures are in place. Passengers are asked to allow extra time for their journey and to arrive at the airport prepared.

Hand baggage restrictions
Passengers are permitted to carry ONE item of hand baggage, no larger than the specified size, through the airport security search point. The dimensions are as follows:

56 centimetres long (approximately 22 inches)
45 centimetres wide (approximately 17.5 inches)
25 centimetres deep (approximately 9.85 inches).

Please note: Other bags, such as handbags, may be carried WITHIN the single item of cabin baggage. All items carried by passengers will be x-ray screened. Cameras, small electrical items such as MP3 players and gameboys, etc can remain in the bag for screening. However, all laptops and large electrical items must be removed from the bag and placed in a separate tray. Pushchairs and walking aids are permitted but must be x-ray screened. Wheelchairs are permitted but must be thoroughly searched.
