Ryanair has issued an "important" warning to passengers ahead of their flights departing from UK airports.

The budget airline is popular with many travellers, with no-frills flights to a long list of destinations, and Ryanair bosses have now issued an alert to people who are due to fly before June 1.

It comes ahead of the 100ml liquids rule for hand luggage being scrapped. The strict regulations were brought in back in 2006 after a failed terror attempt.

However, back in 2022, the Government announced all airports would be upgrading their screening equipment and changing the liquids rule from 100ml to up to two litres. At the time, a deadline of June 2024 was set - but different UK airports will have their new scanners up and running by different dates.

An email, with the subject heading "important travel information" sent to many Ryanair customers with bookings reads: "We want to remind passengers that despite upcoming changes to the rule, the 100ml limit on liquids still applies across UK airports and will begin to be phased out starting June 1st 2024.

"We ask all passengers traveling through UK airports in the coming months to please consult the website of the airport for the most accurate and up to date information on their liquids policy. Please check the websites of all airports you will depart from on your trip as policies will vary.

"We advise you to adhere to the policy of each airport to avoid delays in security."
