Singapore will be implementing new aviation security measures for hand-carry luggage on flights departing Singapore from 8 May 2007 (Tuesday), 1200hrs. These measures are in line with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) recommendations, made after the reported United Kingdom aviation terror plot in August 2006 and following the latest recommendations on these restrictions issued by ICAO on 30 March 2007. These measures also apply to passengers making transit/transfer connections in Singapore.

The new measures restrict the carriage of Liquids, Aerosols and Gels in hand-carry luggage on all flights departing from Changi Airport and Seletar Airport.

The following restrictions will apply:

  1. Liquids, Aerosols and Gels must be in containers with a maximum capacity of not more than 100ml each. Liquids, Aerosols and Gels in containers larger than 100ml will not be accepted, even if the container is partially-filled
  2. Containers must be placed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag with a maximum capacity not exceeding 1-litre. These containers must fit comfortably within the transparent re-sealable plastic bag, which must be

    completely closed
  3. Only one transparent re-sealable plastic bag will be permitted per passenger
  4. The transparent re-sealable plastic bag must be presented separately for examination at the security screening point

Exemptions will be made for medications, baby food and special dietary items in Liquids, Aerosols and Gels form. These items will be subjected to additional checks at the security screening point.

Passengers can continue to purchase Liquids, Aerosols and Gels items, such as liquor and perfumes, at Changi Airport. Such purchases will be placed in sealed tamperevident bags by the shops, with the receipt clearly displayed in the sealed bags.

Passengers are advised to check with their respective airlines and Changi Airport’s website for detailed information on the new measures before they arrive at the airport. To facilitate passengers’ check-in and security screening processes, all passengers are also advised to pack their Liquids, Aerosols and Gels items

appropriately in their check-in luggage or hand-carry luggage, in accordance with the new restrictions, before they arrive at the airport.
