This is bound to take some of the stress out of air travel.

Anyone who has the luxury of flying regularly knows that one of the less pleasant parts of air travel is the journey through the airport beforehand.

After all, there is the heart-stopping moment of weighing your bag before check-in, the moving through the throng of passengers, and worst of all, the pain that is going through airport security.

The major difficulty here is having to remove all your electronics and liquids.

Even if you're a well versed traveller, let's be honest, there's always someone who acts as if they have never gone through airport security in their life (serious first world problems, I know).

They took to their socials to let passengers know that they are planning to install new technology that would eliminate the need to remove liquids and items like laptops, tablets and other electronics from their cabin baggage.

In the statement, the airport said:

"With this new system, all liquid, gels, aerosols, creams, pastes, baby food, medicines and special dietary products that would previously have had to be put into clear sealed plastic bags and presented separately to hand luggage can now remain packed in cabin bags."

The new tech system is set to be up and running at Knock Airport by the end of November, in anticipation of the busy holiday season.

This style of technology has already been rolled out in Dublin Airport for certain security lanes.
