PASSENGERS at Aberdeen International Airport no longer need to remove laptops or liquids when passing through terminal security.

The North East’s largest transport hub is now equipped with the latest Next Generation Security Checkpoint (NGSC) Scanners.

It means that the previous 100ml liquid rule is no longer in force with departing passengers able to carry bottles containing up to two litres in carry-on bags. Electrical items like laptops will also be able to be stored in carry-on bags.

The airport has moved to the new compliant process ahead of a UK Government deadline for installing the scanners.

Last year more than 2.3 million passengers passed through the terminal.

William Wallace, Security Manager at Aberdeen International Airport said: “We are delighted to have the NGSC scanners operational at Aberdeen.

“We are well ahead of the deadline set by the Government thanks to all the hard work from our staff and contractors.

“This is one of the biggest changes in airport security so we would ask passengers to be prepared for this new process and to have patience as we enter the biggest change in aviation security in nearly two decades.”

Passengers are reminded that different rules may apply at other UK airports.

It is important to check what the process is at both your departing airport and any other airports you will travel through or from before you set off, as this may be different.
