Much like the 3-1-1 rule in the U.S., the European Union enforces the same policy on liquids in carry-on bags. But unlike the U.S., the EU has decided to end the ban on liquids – a frustration many travelers have had to comply with since the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The EU's top transportation official announced last week that soon, passengers will be allowed to carry liquids on flights without size requirements, thanks to new security screening methods that are being put in place.
EU Transport Commissioner Antonio Tajani told The Associated Press "he is 'resolved to get rid of these awkward and very uncomfortable' checks on passengers when new technology to screen for explosives becomes available."
