Jan. 4, 2008, London, UK – Britain has decided to relax cabin luggage rules at 19
airports, including Heathrow.

Officials say passengers travelling through those airports –
which also include Stansted,  Manchester and Birmingham among others
 – will be allowed to take two pieces of cabin luggage through
security checks starting Monday.

The one-bag rule was imposed for security reasons in 2006.

Airports where the one-bag rule will stay in place include
Gatwick, Luton, Leeds, Bradford and Liverpool.

Advertisment

Airport operator BAA PLC said travellers should check with
airlines to see what carry-on baggage policy is in place at their
departure airport.

Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly said last week that improved
security technology meant the restrictions could be relaxed.
