From 2024, Spanish airports will permit liquids in carry-on luggage

Spanish airports say adiós to liquid limits.

Travelers in Spain can kiss the liquid limit rule goodbye as Spanish airports will soon allow people to take more than 100ml of liquids in their carry-on. No more jamming your travel-size containers into one clear bag and hoping for the best. 

Starting in 2024, restrictions on liquids will be lifted at some Spanish terminals, meaning travelers can bring items like full-size bottles of wine or olive oil in their hand luggage. In addition to these new rules, airports will allow travelers to leave electronics tucked in their luggage following the installation of 3D X-ray technology.

Which Spanish airports will follow these new rules? 

Madrid Barajas and Barcelona El-Prat will be the first two airports in Spain to eliminate rules regarding liquids and electronics. There are also plans to lift restrictions at Palma de Mallorca airport by the end of 2024.

In addition, the installation of new 3D X-ray scanners for electronics is scheduled to happen at Malaga Costa del Sol in 2025, followed by Gran Canaria, Tenerife Sur, Fuerteventura, Cesar Manrique Lanzarote, Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernandez, Ibiza, Bilbao, Menorca, and Valencia from 2026 onwards.

These new rules for travelers in Spain echo the UK’s recent moves to scrap liquids limits and laptop removal by June 2024. The introduction of new security rules aims to alleviate the increasing queues and delays at security checkpoints, which were partly responsible for the airport chaos witnessed this past summer.
