Strange Podcast Alert: The What You Can Put In Your Luggage When You Fly Podcast

Jun 5th, 2008 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, General, News Podcasts, Strange

A reminder that there’s a podcast for just about anything:

Flyers worried about being able to remember what they can and cannot take in and out of the UK have received aid in the form of a podcast.

Downloadable from the HM Revenue & Customs website, the free audio podcast sees customs expert Mark Fuchter detail which goods carry restrictions when flying back into the UK, as well as which items are completely banned.

Food, plants, wildlife souvenirs, prescription drugs, counterfeit goods and offensive weapons, among other items, are covered in the podcast. It can be downloaded to an mp3 player or listened to from the website.

“If you’re planning a trip abroad, for business or pleasure, take a few minutes to find out what you can and can’t, bring back with you – it could save you a lot of time and money in the long run,” Mr Fuchter remarked.

The Civil Aviation Authority recently warned passengers that taking certain items or improperly packing some goods – such as batteries – could result in a safety risk for those onboard the flight.

Now if we could just convince them to let us use the iPod functions of our iPhones in-flight, we’d be set!
