(T&T GUARDIAN) – A new restriction has been imposed on carry-on baggage for passengers flying to the United States.

Effective June 30, following a directive to airlines from the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA), any “powder like substance” with the exception of baby formula, medically prescribed powder-like substances and human remains, will be forbidden in carry-on and cabin luggage if the quantity of the substance is over 350 millilitres, 12 ounces or 350 grams.

The same limitation applies to the capacity of the container which cannot be over 350 millilitres.

Passengers flying to the USA must give up any “powder-like substance” over this amount.

This new restriction is in addition to one previously imposed for liquids in hand luggage, including drinks, liquid or semi-liquid foods, sprays, pastes, gels and other similar solutions.

The only amount of liquid allowed is in containers that hold no more than 100 ml.
