Australian Government to enforce new restrictions on travelling with powders.
The Australian Government is enforcing new limits on how much powder product you can pack in carry-on baggage on international flights and tougher screening at airport security.
The new rules will also apply to Australian domestic passengers departing from international terminals, reports news.com.au.
The new powder restrictions affect international flights to and from Australia. From 30 June 2018, flyers will only be permitted a maximum of 350mL or 350 grams of “inorganic powders” in their carry-on luggage. As per the current LAGs restrictions, this does not affect domestic flights within Australia.
Even your makeup could be an issue!
Make-up products such as foundation and blush and powders such as baby formula will have to be taken out of a passenger’s carry-on baggage at security as part of the increased measures.
The Australian Government is distinguishing between organic powders, such as baby formula, coffee, protein powder and spices, and inorganic powders, such as talcum powders, foot powders, powdered detergent, some cosmetics and cleaning products.
Organic powders are fine but restrictions apply to inorganic powders.
