The U.K.'s restrictions on carry-on
baggage, imposed after a series of security incidents in 2006, will
be eased starting Jan. 7. At that time, airport operators will need
to seek permission to allow passengers to bring more than one
carry-on item onto planes. However, the operators will have to
prove their facilities can handle the screening of the additional
carry-on items before the restrictions will be eased. Size
limitations still will apply.
