With the terror alerts in London last week, all airports are tightening security, and those traveling in and out of China should account for the new restrictions, and delays. China Law Blog refers to a post from Danwei on the issues of flight security, and to an article from the Wall Street Journal:
- “no liquid aside from goods purchased after the airport-security check, like duty-free liquor, could be taken aboard outbound flights. The only exceptions were for baby formula and certain medicines.”
Given the usual (terrible) state of queues at immigration and security for international flights from China, I fear that the delays could be pretty long and painful.
Have a safe trip.
