3-1-1 Rule Revisited

By Linda Tancs

As any traveler knows, 3-1-1 (the rule restricting carry-on liquids to 3 ounces in a single quart-sized, ziplock bag) has evolved into a global rule for the promotion of safe air travel.  The TSA Web site reports that the following countries have adopted the rule: 

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Canada, Cape Verde, China, Cook Islands, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, French Polynesia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Marshall Islands, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

Of course, all travelers should exercise caution and watchfulness (especially during busy holiday seasons such as this) regardless of the rules in play (or lack thereof), as the TSA recommends.

3-1-1 Rule

By Linda Tancs

Okay, so you know better than to pack more than a 3-ounce tube of anything in your carry-on bag if you have hopes of keeping it on the plane with you.  Then why would you try to bring an almost-empty 7-ounce tube of toothpaste with you?  Yes, it has been tried.  No, it didn’t work.
