The ban on liquids over 100 ml and the requirement for travelers to take water bottles and creams out of their hang luggage at security checkpoints in the United Kingdom will be lifted as a result of new scanning technology.

The move was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday.

The U.K Department of Transport said that the new 3D C.T. scanners should provide screeners at airport security checkpoints with better images of what is in carry-on bags.

The government will require all major U.K. airports to install the new technology by 2022.  The change will also cut down on the number of small plastic bags used by travelers to hold their 100 ml bottles in.
