New airport baggage security measures in Muscat International Airport

Dubai (PTI): Oman will apply new security measures at all airports in the country in line with the new global guidelines issued by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
There will be strict restrictions on the quantity of liquids, including aerosols and gels, allowed in the hand baggage of the departing passengers.
As per the new rule which will come into effect from Janaury 1, 2008, liquids, aerosols and gels over 100ml cannot be carried in the hand baggage. These include drinks in cans, bottles, plastic containers, etc, cosmetics and toiletries in liquid/gel form, fragrances and perfumes, creams, liquid foundations and lip gloss, mascara, toothpaste, all products in pressurised containers like hairspray and shaving foam/gels, deodorants, as well as any liquid-based food products in packets, tubes, plastic or tin containers, like jams and syrups, sauces, pastes, yoghurts, soups (cartons or otherwise) and stews or curry.
All containers must be packed in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag not larger than 20cm x 20cm. Only one plastic bag is permitted per passenger and this must be placed separately at the X-ray machine belt.
