ACSA has announced it will be launching a hand baggage enforcement programme at all its airports this year. The aim of the project is to control the carriage of hand baggage on to aircraft and identify passengers with non- compliant and baggage before the security point, referring them back to the check-in counters to enable passengers to check this baggage in as hold baggage.

To this end, the airports authority has released a document outlining the principles and procedures governing the enforcement of hand baggage criteria of flights departing from ACSA airports. The full document can be downloaded from this link:
