However it is not lear how long the rule would be in place for.The announcement comes after some airports were given the greenlight to allow passengers to carry up to two litres of liquids in their hand luggage following the installation of new CT scanners.The Department for Transport (DfT) announced that passengers departing from Aberdeen, London City, Newcastle, Leeds Bradford, Southend and Teesside airports will be impacted.
