Confusion regarding Liquids in Carry-On Luggage...

Earlier this month there was a thread highlighting a new policy being enforced by Air Transit at Santa Clara Airport that put a restriction on liquids in carry-on luggage.

Since Cuban Airport Security has NEVER paid any attention to the hysteria generated by Homeland Security, TSA, etc. regarding liquids in carry-on luggage this was quite a shock. The original thread is here:


After almost a month of communication with Air Transit I finally got high enough up the corporate ladder to receive a definitive reply from someone who actually knows what they're talking about.

In a nutshell, here's the deal: There is no such policy in place. The mix-up at Santa Clara Airport was a temporary mistake with communication between Air Transit and ECASA, the Cuban government entity that operates/manages Cuban Airports.

So, much ado about nothing...
