Life is going to become a lot easier for the passengers at the airport now because of these new regulations, potentially allowing the liquids to be carried in hand luggage. Previously, all the liquids above the 100 ml limit, and without a sealed bag packing were confiscated at the security, but 3D equipment called computed tomography scanners, are being installed at the security that will not only save time for the passengers but will also help to make packing a simpler process.
According to the airport sources, about £50 million scanners are being planned to be installed by 2022, that will produce a detailed and accurate image of the liquids and electronic equipment in the luggage. This practice will definitely help to reduce liquid bans. It is also hoped that the liquid ban might end entirely due to this technology.

Those cutting-edge types of equipment will not only ensure the safety of the airport, but will also help the passenger to spend more time over travel essentials rather than to get prepared for hectic security screening.
Previously, this technology has been trialled in Europe and America. Department for Transport is planning to trial it outside the London airports, this summer.
