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.
