Airports in Europe are set to begin gradually relaxing restrictions on carry-on liquids in January following improvements in screening technology and a thumbs-up sign from U.S. officials. Passengers will be allowed to carry duty-free purchases over 100ml in a tamper-proof bag when entering European airports from abroad. If the trial is successful, officials hope to continue lifting restrictions on liquids, although no timetable has been set. "So far we are confident that we will be able to make it with the partial withdrawal of restrictions," said Airports Council International Europe Director General Olivier Jankovec.
