Bolt, the first European super-app partnered with Hugo’s Burger Bar to donate €1 each to Puttinu Cares for each order placed on 6th April 2023. 

The generous initiative will see the donation paid directly by Bolt and Hugo’s Burger Bar. This means that customers will get no additional cost as they still donate to an immensely good cause. 

Puttinu Cares is, as you probably already know, a children’s cancer support group which was set up in October 2002.

‘The goal of this partnership is to support the marathon organised by Puttinu Cares which aims to raise funds to support children and their families that are affected by cancer.’

‘We are very passionate about this initiative and would love to spread the word about it as much as possible. That is why we are reaching out to you, as we believe that your platform would be an excellent way to communicate about this and reach a wider audience’ the brands said.

London City Airport scraps 100ml liquid rule thanks to new CT scanners

London City Airport scraps 100ml liquid rule thanks to new CT scanners
Apr 4 2023 Share

Passengers travelling through London City Airport will no longer have to limit liquids to just 100ml in hand luggage, thanks to newly introduced high-tech CT scanners at security. 

The move will come into effect today and comes after the UK government set a deadline (June 2024) for most UK airports to install the machinery. 

The tech will also mean that passengers will no longer have to remove tablets, laptops and other electronic items from their hand luggage for security checks. 

The CT scanners will high resolution 3D images to check hand luggage and clothing for potentially dangerous items. Passengers can now take up to two litres of liquid in their hand luggage. 

The 100ml rule dates back to 2006 after a terrorist threat led to airports forcing passengers to place liquids in a clear plastic bag. This was aimed at stopping liquid explosives from being carried onto planes. 

Trials of the new technology have reportedly been conducted at some airports and it showed the effectiveness of the equipment. They are already used in airports such as Schiphol in Amsterdam. 

Transport Secretary Mark Harper said that most major airports will roll out the new technology this year. Customers were still warned to check the return rules for carrying liquids at any airport.
