The new regulations will come into place from June 14

From June 14, passengers at Bristol Airport will no longer be restricted to 100ml toiletries and bottles among other benefits.

Bristol Airport has invested £11.5 million into next generation security scanners which will make passing through security a less stressful process for passengers.

Passengers will be allowed to keep all items in their hand luggage bag including liquids up to 330ml (maximum size), mobile phone, electrical items and laptops.

Pockets will still need to be emptied and items placed into your bag and the contents of metal water bottles will need to be emptied.

The new security regulations will come into action from June 14.

The new scanners are part of a £400 million investment by Bristol Airport to enhance customer experience over the next five years. As part of the scheme, a new public transport interchange will be created as well as an additional multi-storey car park, new retail and catering areas.

Graeme Gamble, Chief Operating Officer at Bristol Airport, said: “We are delighted all customers travelling from Bristol Airport will benefit from state-of-the-art technology being introduced at security. The new equipment will reduce customer stress and inconvenience as the need for 100ml liquids to be placed in clear, plastic bags and removed from hand baggage will no longer be required. The new process delivers a much more customer friendly security operation using the latest technology and providing enhanced screening, allowing customers to keep personal items in their hand luggage.

“We’ve invested over £11.5m in the security equipment enhancements, and as with all complex and large-scale projects in a 24 hours, 7 day a week operation, we needed to have a phased approach to the introduction of the new equipment and processes. However, customers should be reminded there are no immediate changes to the rules governing what can be taken through security as a result of this initiative, and the current hand luggage restrictions remain in place until 14 June 2024.

“Customers are reminded that whilst the UK has introduced the new security regulations on their return from destination airports customers are advised to check the requirements of their departing airport, as these regulations may differ from the UK.”
