On Saturday June 30, 2018 the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) will be implementing new procedures for travelling with powder-like substances on flights departing Barbados. Powder-like substances are described as fine dry particles produced by the grinding, crushing or disintegration of a solid substance.

Travellers with powder-like substances and granular material over 350 grams (12 ounces) will be required to place them in their checked luggage and not to place them in their carry-on bags. Examples of powder-like substances are flour, sugar, ground coffee, spices, powdered milk, baby powder, foot powder, cooking, bath salt, sea salt, sand and cosmetics among others. Baby formula, medically necessary powders and/or human remains are not included.

Passengers are encouraged to place powder-like substances over 350 grams (12 ounces) in their checked bags, to reduce the chance of aviation security authorities having to dispose of these items at the checkpoint and/or gate.
