Thailand bans smoking in all airports!

It's banned in almost every location, very soon even in your home.

I'm not sure about that... The above "ban" -- which isn't really a "ban" because the article appears to say items under 100 ml are still allowed -- appears to target liquid and semi-liquid items. And I don't see any mention of SOLID food items there like cheese.  But who knows!

 

Wife just phoned to ask and yes, solid foods like my cheese & bread I carry and NOT allowed  😥

Many on here are saying this is just a minor extension of existing rules, but if the headline is correct containers over 100ml are banned from the airport not just hand luggage. If the headline is accurate carrying stuff like sunscreen in your suitcase will no longer be allowed.

 Some clarification needed here, as usual nothing is clear, more detail required.

And we all have to thank the Islamic terrorist for that, who made traveling a pain in the ass with all the security scrutinise time consuming and the billions that it costs the airlines which we the travelers ultimately pay for... 

And more than a bit of an over-reaction considering that 3,000 people died on 9/11, nobody has ever died in an terrorism-related air incident in Thailand (as far as I know), but about 23,000 people die on Thai roads each year. Makes you wonder where attention and resources should really be directed...

From the attached article.

 

"Compliance with the rules for the search for liquid gels, spray that will be brought on an aircraft cabin or taken into a restricted area of a public airport."

 

The restricted area of an airport is after check in of hold baggage. Therefore I would say that hold baggage is exempt.

All items must be under 100 milliliters or they cannot come into passenger areas or be carried on planes.

This was in place at all British airports 15 years ago... I guess Thailand had to catch up some time.

Anything over 100ml in liquid or paste form was banned going through passenger search areas.

However anything bought from "airside in duty free or restaurants ect were allowed on-board as they were delivered via bonded sources!

Ripstanley, thanks for that . So maybe the headline is a bit misleading and the new rule is not much different to the rules already in place.

To be honest I have always wondered why you are allowed to put larger quantities of liquid or gel in checked in baggage ,it's still on the plane.

No good - now my wife will insist we take the bus to places instead of flying ! More 'products' in the banned list.

Simple solution... She takes the bus, and you fly! 😆

I have carried frozen food e.g. cheese, curries etc on domestic flights many times - now seems even that is stopped  😡

I have never had a problem traveling with food, even in my carry on. I sometimes bring back 20 lbs of goat cheese, 10 lbs of chocolate, etc, in my carry one, to keep it cool.

Little confusing, 3 weeks ago it was already the law, 3 months ago it was also already the law, used both airports.SUV and DMK

 

Was it not the law in other airports in Thailand?

Gotta be a fake pic.

 

Never seen departure immigration so empty.

 

Ever.

i think you are just making a joke but if you/anyone is interested, this looks like DMK domestic departures (terminal 2) - the line before you hit security check.  domestic travel is excellent !!!
