Stansted confirms safety restrictions

Stansted confirms safety restrictionsPassengers using Stansted Airport during the busy summer period are being told to become aware of the safety restrictions to avoid any difficulties.

According to the airport, passengers must ensure that they do not travel with sharp items, such as knives or scissors, in their hand luggage in order to save time during the boarding process.

Restrictions also exist on liquids as they must be put in containers of less than 100ml and presented in clear, re-sealable plastic bags which are provided free by Stansted Airport.

"Restrictions on carrying liquids and sharp items remain in place at all UK airports, so we ask all our passengers to take a few minutes to familiarise themselves with the security measures," said Nick Cole, Stansted’s head of terminal.

With over 80,000 passengers set to go through Stansted Airport on the busiest days of the summer rush, holidaymakers are being urged to arrive early so that they can get on with enjoying their break as soon as possible.

"This is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year and we would advise passengers to arrive at least two hours before their flight is due to depart," added Mr Cole.

Stansted Airport has more than 23 million passengers per year and is the UK’s third busiest airport.
