Spanish Airports Relaxes Liquid and Electronics Security Rules

Spain’s AENA, a public company that manages the country’s main airports, announced Monday that passengers at Spanish airports will no longer have to put their liquids and electronic devices in security trays in 2024.

From the end of 2023 or early 2024, passengers will be able to take liquids greater than 100ml in hand luggage on flights from Spain thanks to the installation of new 3D scanners at security checkpoints.

The new rule also means that if you only have hand luggage, you will soon be able to travel with bottles of wine, jars of local honey, or olive oils.

AENA said the 3D X-ray scanners, equipped with new technologies that analyze the contents of luggage in detail, will be put into use that year.

Madrid Barajas and Barcelona El Prat airports, which account for 40% of passenger traffic in Spain, will be the first airports to receive the new scanners, and they will be installed at Palma de Mallorca and other airports by the end of 2024.

AENA will tender for the purchase of the 3D X-ray scanners this year.

The company will invest €1.17 billion ($1.25 billion) in renewing baggage control and security devices between 2018 and 2028.
