Caribbean Airlines has recently announced that persons travelling to the USA will have new guidelines when carrying items overseas. On June 30, 2018; the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA), instructed airlines that the new carry-on baggage restrictions are in effect for all passengers flying to that country.
“Specifically, any “powder like substance” with the exception of baby formula, medically prescribed powder-like substances and human remains will now be forbidden in carry-on and cabin luggage if the quantity of the substance is over 350 millilitres, 12 ounces or 350 grams.”
Caribbean Airlines disclosed that the same limitation applies to the capacity of the container which cannot be over 350 millilitres.
The US has restricted the placement of “powder like” substances in carry-ons.
“All passengers flying to the USA must give up any “powder-like substance” over this amount and place it in their checked baggage for transportation in the baggage hold of the aircraft.”
This directive comes on the heels of a recent meeting between representatives of TSA and Guyana Civil Aviation Authority.
