Airline passengers face delays later this month when the EU’s ban on carrying liquids in hand luggage is partly lifted.
Passengers on long-haul flights are currently banned from carrying duty-free liquids between planes while in transit, but should be allowed to do so on April 29.
The goods – including alcohol, perfume and aerosols will have to be carried in tamper-proof clear plastic bags.
EU officials see the decision as an important step in completely lifting the liquid ban by 2013.
But airlines and airport operators have warned the changed laws will cause severe disruption in airports, The Times reported.
