New Delhi, January 21

Domestic flyers will no longer be allowed to carry more than one handbag in the aircraft. The move is aimed at easing out congestion, addressing security concerns and reducing burden at screening points at airports.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has asked the aviation authorities to implement the “One Hand Bag” order meticulously.

As per the Bureau of Aviation Security (BCAS) Circular, no passenger should be permitted to carry more than one hand bag, barring a few exceptions including women’s purse and laptop bag.

The CISF guards all key airports in India. Officials said passengers, carrying more than one handbag, were leading to increased clearance time, delays, besides inconvenience to other travellers.
