Liquid ban on all flights from Thailand

Thailand will start enforcing new restrictions on liquids, aerosols and gels in hand carried luggage on all commercial flights departing from airports nationwide in the next few weeks, according to a report in Bangkok Post paper. This is in accordance with the suggestions by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), following the discovery of a terrorist plot in Britain last year. South Korea and Hong Kong have already implimented such restrictions, while Singapore will start restrictions on May 8. The limit is on all liquids, aerosols and gels in containers more than the maximum capacity of 100 ml. Even if the containers are not full, they will not be permitted to carry in a hand luggage. This include those bought from airport duty free shops, including alcohols and perfumes. Liquids in containers less than a maximum capacity of 100 ml will still be permitted to hand carry.
