Aturan membawa cairan ke kabin penerbangan Eropa

Aturan yang ketat membawa cairan dalam penerbangan Eropa ditetapkan tahun 2006 setelah ada rencana sabotase di bandara Inggris. Sewaktu melakukan perjalanan pulang ke Indonesia tanggal 24 desember 06 dengan KLM sempat transit di Schipol Belanda, saya sempat melihat banyak penumpang yang belum tau aturan ini sehingga sewaktu melakukan transit petugas di bandara tersebut membuang barang-barang penumpang yang berisi cairan kedalam tong sampah. Kalau barang2 mahal yang dibuang kan sayang....Teman saya dari Brazil sempat dibuang parfum mahal yang baru dibeli di Roma. Ada baiknya mempersiapkan diri sebelum membawa buahtangan berupa cairan dalam penerbangan Eropa. Berikut adalah peraturan yang berkaitan dengan apa saja yang boleh dibawah penumpang kedalam kabin.

Changes for travellers:
new rules for hand luggage at all EU airports
New rules on what is permitted in hand luggage will
take effect on 6 November 2006. Liquids, gels and
aerosols are only allowed in hand luggage in small
quantities (no more than 100 ml per item) and if
correctly packaged. These rules will apply to all
passengers departing from or changing planes at EU
airports.

The new rules cover liquids such as water and other
beverages, gels, pastes, lotions and the contents of
aerosol cans. Toiletries such as toothpaste, shaving
cream, hair gel, lip gloss and creams also fall under
the rules.

These are the rules for liquids in your hand luggage:

1. You can only take liquids and gels in containers of
no more than 100 millilitres on board the aircraft.
2. These containers must be carried in transparent
plastic bags.
3. There is a limit of one transparent plastic bag per
person.
4. The volume of the transparent plastic bag may not
be greater than 1 litre.
5. The transparent plastic bag must be re-sealable.
You may bring a suitable plastic bag from home. During
the introductory period, free transparent plastic bags
will also be given out at all Dutch airports.
There are two exceptions to the above rules:

Baby food needed during the flight;

Medicines needed during the flight.
Shopping at airports and on board the flight
You can still make purchases, including duty-free
purchases, after ticket and/or passport control and on
board European airline flights. Liquids and gels that
you buy after ticket and/or passport control or on
board will be packed and sealed for you as necessary
by the shop or cabin personnel. The seal is valid for
one day. If you must change planes, you may not break
the seal until you reach your final destination.

Keep your liquids separate
When passing through the security check for hand
luggage, you must place your liquids separately in the
bin for X-ray screening. Your containers of liquids
must fit comfortably in the transparent plastic bag,
and the bag must be closed. Coats, jackets and large
electrical appliances such as laptops must also be
handed in separately to be checked.

Q & A

Why are these rules necessary?
The new rules for hand luggage were introduced after
the arrest of suspected terrorists in Britain in
August 2006. The suspects were thought to be involved
in a plot to destroy aircraft using liquid explosives.
Liquids in hand luggage are now subjected to greater
restrictions and stricter controls to reduce the
chances of such an attack.

Why liquids?
Extensive research on the subject has shown that large
amounts of liquid explosives are needed to cause an
explosion. For this reason, passengers may no longer
carry large amounts of liquids in their hand luggage.
Liquids and gels sold at airports are subject to extra
checks, and liquids and gels brought from home may
only be brought on board in small quantities.

What can I expect at airport checkpoints?
At the security checkpoints, all hand luggage goes
through a scanner on a conveyer belt. At this point
your hand luggage is also checked for liquids.
According to the new rules, if you want to take
liquids in your hand luggage, you have to pack them
separately before departure, either at home or at the
airport.

If, in spite of this, you pack loose containers of
liquids and gels in your hand luggage, you should
allow for the possibility that they will be
confiscated at the security checkpoint.

Before the checkpoints, there are specially equipped
locations where you can obtain a plastic bag and
repack your liquids and gels.

You must present all liquids separately when your hand
luggage is checked. Your transparent plastic bag must
be closed, and your containers of liquids must fit in
it comfortably. Coats, jackets and large electrical
appliances such as laptops must also be presented
separately for inspection.

Where can I get a plastic bag?
Transparent plastic bags that meet the European
requirements are still hard to obtain in shops. During
the introductory period, free transparent plastic bags
will be given out at all Dutch airports.

Can I still shop after passport control? Is there
still duty-free shopping?
Yes, you can still do your shopping, including
duty-free shopping, at EU airports after passport
control and on European airline flights. Liquids and
gels that you buy after the ticket and/or passport
control or on board will be packed and sealed for you
as necessary by the shop or on board. The seal is
valid for one day. If you must change to another
plane, you may not break the seal until you reach your
final destination.

Shopping at non-European airports and on board
non-European airlines
If you buy liquids or gels (duty-free or not) at a
non-European airport and change planes at a European
airport, you should allow for the possibility that
your purchases will be confiscated at the security
checkpoint. This can happen with purchases you make on
board an aircraft operated by an airline from a non-EU
country.

Shopping at European airports and on board European
airlines
If you buy liquids or gels (duty-free) at a European
airport and change planes at a European airport,
travelling on to the United States, you should allow
for the possibility that your purchases will be
confiscated at the security checkpoint. This can
happen with purchases you make on board an aircraft
operated by an airline from an EU country.

Why do I need a plastic bag?
The transparent plastic bag is needed for the airport
security check. If all the containers are together in
the transparent plastic bag, security personnel can
see at a glance if the rules have been followed.
Ensuring that the bag is closed and packing it so that
the containers fit in it comfortably will make
security checks go faster.

If, in spite of this, you pack loose containers of
liquids and gels in your hand luggage, you should
allow for the possibility that they will be
confiscated at the security checkpoint.

Do these rules apply everywhere?
The same rules apply at all airports in all 25 EU
countries. These rules will therefore apply whenever
you are departing from or changing planes in the EU.
Similar rules for hand luggage apply in the US and
Canada. Bear in mind that different rules may apply in
other non-EU countries.

Where can I find these rules?
The same rules for hand luggage will apply to all air
passengers in the EU as of 6 November 2006. You can
find these rules on teletext page 762 or on the
website of your airline or airport.
