MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. A ban on liquids carriage in aircraft passenger cabins is effective from January 10, the Transport Ministry’s press service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Earlier, Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov demanded leaders of the Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) and the Federal Transport Supervision Service (Rostransnadzor) be informed about new rules of preflight inspection in all Russian airports and airlines within the 24 hours. “On January 11, they should give a report on their work. The ban has begun operating since January 10,” the ministry’s press service said.
In compliance with the new rules, Russian passengers were banned to carry liquids in aircraft of any size (containers, tubes etc), including less than 100 mL, with the exception of medications, special dietary needs, baby food (mother’s milk), as are needed to get through a flight. Mentioned requirements do not spread on items, which are purchased at controlled areas, including in Duty Free shops.
These measures are being taken to protect civil aviation facilities from acts of unlawful interference during preparations for and holding of the XXII Olympic Games and XI Paralympics Games 2014 in Sochi, the telegram says.
Corresponding changes will be made to the pre-flight and post-flight inspection rules. Rostransnadzor will supervise additional security measures.
