Latest Holdup at China’s Airport Security? Powder
Passengers flying to the U.S. now face extra scrutiny if they hand-carry a quantity of powder larger than a Coke can — a new rule that market observers said might become a common practice in other parts of the world.
The new rule, mandated by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, went into effect at the end of June.
At the boarding gates of all international inbound flights to the U.S., including those from China, airlines now are required to take a closer look at hand-carry luggage if it contains more than 350 milliliters (11.8 fluid ounces) of powder, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said.
