Regulators and Stakeholders intensify co-operation to remove restrictions on carry-on liquids at EU/US airports
As a further sign of good transatlantic cooperation on aviation security and shared interest with business and stakeholders, the European Commission's Directorate General for Mobility and Transport and the United States' Transportation Security Administration (TSA), together with the main European and American aviation stakeholders (airlines, airports, retail associations and liquids equipment manufacturers), signed today a joint statement. This confirms their intention cooperate towards the screening of liquids aerosols and gels (LAGs) at EU/US airports. Based on a roadmap, the sides intend to find a comprehensive risk-based security solution which will facilitate the lifting of the restrictions to LAGs as soon as practical, maintaining security and facilitating passengers and trade in international civil aviation.
