British Travellers Split on Airport Liquid Ban

British Travellers Split on Airport Liquid Ban

Do you feel safer with the liquid ban in place?

With the EU Commission announcing last week that the ban on taking liquids onto aircraft will remain indefinitely, we polled our community of travellers to find out exactly what they think about this issue.

The poll of almost 5,000* respondents on TripAdvisor.co.uk revealed that British travellers are split down the middle with half of respondents (48%) claiming they feel safer with the current liquid ban in place, while 40% said that the ban does not make them feel any safer. A further 12% were unsure on the matter.

“As we hit such a peak air travel period in the UK, it seems many travellers will be disappointed to hear that the liquid ban is to stay in place. But for the 47% of British travellers who see it as an extra reassurance, the EC Commission’s decision is sure to be welcomed,” commented Emma Shaw, TripAdvisor spokesperson.

*Poll carried out on 4,766 respondents on TripAdvisor.co.uk between 21-23 July 2012
