IRISH travellers are in for a major boost as one airport in a popular destination is scrapping a strict travel rule.
The airport will be the first in the country to bin the 100ml liquid rule for security.
New technology at London City Airport, in the UK, will get rid of the rule that often causes chaos and delays in security queues.
Instead of the traditional security experience, passengers will use new CT scanners.
These will remove the need for people to take liquids out of their luggage and will allow passengers to bring up to two litres of liquids, rather than the standard 100ml.
Additionally, laptops and electronic items won’t need to be removed from hand luggage either, speeding up the whole process even further.
The CT scanners allow airport security staff to inspect baggage through a 3D image.
And the savvy tech should make the process of passing through security much more swift.
Robert Sinclair, CEO of London City Airport said passengers are going to love the new security experience.
He told The Times: “The good news for anyone planning a holiday or a business trip is that we will be the first mainstream UK airport to offer a fully CT security experience from the end of this month.
