New Airport Security Measures in Australia

security measures ....... getting more and more of it. i wonder in this coming july when travel with the entire contingent to uk for 21st world scout jamboree, anymore things that we need to consider and take note.

for those who will be travel to australia soon like myself, please take note of the following:

From 31 March 2007, the Australian Government will introduce
new security measures to limit the amount of liquids, aerosols
and gels that can be taken through the screening-point for
people flying to and from Australia, and on domestic sectors
within Australia which are part of an international flight.
These measures are being progressively introduced by countries
around the world. As you are booked to fly internationally
with us around this time, this will affect you.

All containers with drinks, creams, perfumes, sprays, gels,
toothpaste and similar substances should not exceed 100ml each
and will have to be carried in a re-sealable clear plastic bag,
no larger than 20cm x 20cm, and be inspected separately. There
is a limit of one plastic bag per passenger.

Passengers flying to and from Australia may take on board
liquids, aerosols and gels purchased after the final screening
point, including duty free goods. If you are transferring to a
different flight enroute you will be subject to re-screening at
the transfer point. As a result we would recommend that any
purchases of duty free liquids, aerosols or gels which exceed
100ml should be made on your last international flight sector,
or on arrival. If you are transferring to an onward flight you
must ensure any liquids, aerosols and gels purchased after the
screening point are packed in accordance with the security
measures in place at your transfer airport.

Exceptions will be made for medication and baby food. However,
these items may be subject to additional security checks.

We recommend passengers travelling on international flights
departing from Australia between 31 March and 30 April 2007
arrive at the airport up to three hours before departure to
allow extra time for security screening during the
implementation of these new Government measures.
