UK Airports set to Relax Baggage Restrictions

Airports across the UK have begun relaxing and removing the one bag limit rule and are allowing passengers to carry more than one piece of hand luggage on flights.

Since a nationwide tightening of security at airports in August 2006, passengers throughout the UK have been restricted to one piece of hand luggage. Many airports have now been giving the go ahead to allow passengers to carry more than one piece of hand luggage, providing that they have installed improved security scanners. Heathrow, Birmingham and Manchester are amongst those airports which have the improved scanners and are allowing passengers to carry more than one piece of luggage onto flights.

While many of the country's major airports have been given the go ahead, some have yet to be - including Bristol, Luton, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool John Lennon and Gatwick among them. Airlines such as easyJet, Ryanair and Flybe are continuing to keep the one-bag limit it place.

The restrictions on liquids and cabin baggage still apply and airlines may place their own restrictions on the amount of hand luggage. Passengers are advised to check with their airline for further details.
