NZ Aviation Security: Additional security
11 August 2006
The Aviation Security Service is applying additional security measures designed for passenger safety.
All airlines with flights into and out of the United States of America are affected. This also applies to passengers who may be going on to a United Kingdom airport.
Effective immediately, passengers cannot carry liquids and gels on to the aircraft. This includes beverages (including duty free purchases), shampoos, suntan lotions, creams, toothpastes, hair gels and other items of a similar consistency.
Excluded from the measures are baby formula or juice if a baby or small child is travelling, prescription medicine with a name that matches the name on the passenger's ticket and insulin and other non-prescription medicines. All passenger footwear will also be screened prior to departure.
