SAA cautions on US liquid restrictions

    South African Airways (SAA) has advised its customers of additional restrictions for passengers on the carriage of liquids when travelling to the United States.

    “In terms of the United States’ Transportation Security Administration (TSA), there will be additional security requirements for flights to the United States of America (USA) and these will be in the form of restrictions to carry certain specified items in the cabin under specified circumstances.

    “These restrictions are imposed on all passengers in transit/transfer to the USA and will apply to both SAA flights to the United States,” said SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali on Wednesday.

    The restrictions relate to carriage of liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGS) purchased at duty-free areas of the airports by passengers in transit on flights originating from Johannesburg, Accra and Dakar.

    The restrictions will apply to all flights to the United States only, with effect from 25 March 2019.

    SAA has two flights daily to Washington D.C and to New York. The flight to New York is a non-stop operation, while the flight to Washington D.C goes via Accra and Dakar- – four and three times a week, respectively. 

    Liquids, aerosols and gels may not be transported in cabin baggage (accessible property) of any passengers connecting to the USA from Johannesburg, Accra, and Dakar. This requirement does, however, not affect duty-free purchased at the last point of departure in Johannesburg, Accra, and Dakar.

    For SAA to comply with this restriction, SAA’s security gate search teams conducting current gate passenger screening will verify any duty-free items purchased at upstream airports and will deny the carriage of such items on the flight, regardless of whether such items are packed in security tamper evidence bags or not.

    Passengers are advised to factor this in when planning to transit/transfer through Johannesburg, Accra, and Dakar to avoid unnecessary discomfort and/or possible loss of their items.

    The national carrier apologised for the inconvenience caused by the restrictions imposed.

    “We trust that our discerning passengers will appreciate that from time to time there will be changes introduced in the industry by the regulators or by agencies of jurisdictions to which SAA operates,” said Tlali.

    These measures said Tlali are aimed at improving security and safety of all across the value chain.
