According to the Noi Bai International Airport, the move aims to comply with Australian powder, liquid, aerosol, and gel restrictions.

The airport will work with Bamboo Airways and Vietnam Airlines to screen carry-on luggage to ensure the volume of liquids stays within the limit.

The intense liquid screening will be applied for flight QH82 of Bamboo Airways and flight VN787 of the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.

Passengers must measure the quantity of liquid with monitoring devices installed at each boarding gate. Liquid measurement must be finished 90 minutes before the departure time.

Each passenger is allowed to carry a maximum of 1,000 milliliters of liquid on board. The volume of each container is a maximum of 100 milliliters, and all containers must be sealed in full.

Medications, dairy products, and baby food are not subject to the restrictions provided that the passenger can show a detailed description of the medication and if they have children at their side.

If the liquid is purchased at the lounge, the passenger can take it on board with the unlimited volume, on condition that the bottle is contained in a sealed plastic bag with detailed information about the date and place of purchase, flight number, passenger's name and volume.

Noi Bai International Airport spokesman said the control of carry-on liquids is subject to Article 71 of Circular 13/2019/TT-BGTVT issued by the Ministry of Transport.
