LAG ruling implemented

All liquids, aerosols and gels (LAG) confiscated from passengers at airport boarding gates will be immediately destroyed.

The move follows the implementation of the new LAG ruling requiring passengers to place containers of LAG materials, of not more than 100ml, in a transparent, resealable bag if they were going to be in the carry-on luggage.

Liquids of more than 100ml have to be checked in unless approved, or will be confiscated at the boarding gate. LAGs carried in containers larger than 100ml are not allowed, even if the container is only partially filled.

However, passengers can still buy LAG materials at airport stores after passing the boarding gates. These items will be put in a sealed tamper-evident plastic bag and allowed to be taken on board.

The Government will not enforce the new ruling involving liquids, aerosols or gels (LAGs) for domestic flights, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy.
