The new regulations are expected to prohibit passengers from bringing 350 milliliters or more of powder into the cabin. The source also disclosed that the pre-boarding screening of powders will begin on June 30. According to the source, the screening is part of the anti-terror measures taken by major Japanese airlines at the request of the U.S. government.
