Dougherty County --  Most passengers flying out of the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Monday afternoon had not heard of the new rule changes.

The signs posted at the airport still had the rules that went into effect last month, saying no liquids were allowed. Robert Newberry of Colquitt flew out of Albany bound for India.

Newberry flies a lot, and said he has just learned to be flexible about the Transportation Security rule changes. Newberry said "The future of air travel, that's right. You can't be too cautious. "

Newberry said he feels safe flying.

Air passengers starting Tuesday can carry a bottle of water or beverage onto a plane, but you must purchase it in the stores past the security checkpoint.
