3D scanners could end airport liquid restrictions.
Mum’s all over the world are rejoicing at the news that new 3d scanners mean taking their own supply of Bombay Sapphire on a long haul flight puts the exotic family holiday back on the cards.
Ministers say the technology will boost security, speed up pre-boarding checks, and could end the restrictions on travelling with liquids and laptops.
Emily Broadfield, 32 of Milton Keynes said, ‘Since my two darling sleep thieves arrived, I’ve been forced to holiday in the UK because I just can’t afford the cost of a trip abroad, plus all the airline alcohol needed to survive a flight with two under twos. Since this news broke, I’ve been stocking up on the mother’s ruin and googling holiday destinations!’
Currently, passengers taking liquid in their cabin baggage are restricted to containers holding no more than 100ml.
Mum’s across the nation could be heard belly laughing at the idea that 100ml of gin would ever be enough to survive a toddler tantrum at 38,000 ft.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the new equipment means ‘no more pulling out your socks and your underwear, and having to separate your liquids and take your laptops out’.
‘If I can take my own gin on a plane, I’ll happily take out my underwear,’ screeched Emily as she sloshed another triple measure into a tumbler, popped the kids in front of Cbeebies and powered up Pinterest for some holiday inspo.
