New security measures have been implemented at the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) with immediate effect, for the screening of liquids, gels and aerosols.
Persons with carry-on bags may travel with a single quart-size, ‘zip top’, clear plastic bag containing liquids, gels and aerosols of no more than 100 ml (3.4 ounces).
Half-filled larger containers and rolled up toothpaste tubes are disallowed as are gallon size bags and fold-over sandwich bags.
However, greater quantities will be allowed for travelling babies and toddlers, and persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Allowable items include: baby formula and breast milk; all prescription and over-the-counter medications such as eye drops and saline solution for medical purposes and liquids or gels. Items used to augment the body for medical or cosmetic reasons, such as mastectomy products, prosthetic breasts, bras or shells containing gels will also be allowed.
All other normal liquids must be stored in checked luggage and cigarette lighters are expressly prohibited.
