New aviation security measures will be implemented at Abu Dhabi International Airport Terminal 2 from 30 June 2007 (Saturday), 08:00 hours. The new measures restrict the amount of liquids, aerosols and gels that passengers can carry onboard in their hand-carry luggage.



Passengers are advised to check-in all liquids, aerosols and gels items not required during their flight in their check-in luggage. Liquids, aerosols and gels required during the flight should be packed in accordance with the new restrictions, before passengers arrive at the airport.



The restrictions are:


  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. Each passenger is allowed to carry only one transparent re-sealable plastic bag, which must be presented separately for screening



  4. Exemptions will be made for medications, baby food and special dietary items


Passengers are encouraged to check in 2 to 3 hours before their flight (subject to airlines’ requirements).



Abu Dhabi International Airport will implement a number of measures to assist passengers:


  • Airport ambassadors will be deployed throughout Terminal 2 to assist passengers with queries.



  • Information panels will be set up in various locations, such as the Departure Check-In Hall and Screening Points, to inform and remind passengers of the new restrictions.



  • Pamphlets on the new restrictions will also be available and regular announcements on the new measures will be made.



  • Tables will also be set up for passengers who may need to re-pack their belongings.


Passengers can continue to purchase liquids, aerosols and gels, such as liquor and perfumes, at Abu Dhabi International Airport Terminal 2. Passengers who will be transiting or transferring at other airports will have their liquids, aerosols and gels purchases packed in sealed tamper-evident bags by the shops, with the receipt clearly displayed in the sealed bags. Passengers with queries on what purchases can be brought into their destination, or onto their connecting flights at another airport, may seek assistance from shop staff.
