Passengers can now bring folded umbrellas both in their carry-on and checked-in baggage. This was the consensus during a recent consultation by the Office for Transportation Security (OTS) with Airlines Operators Council and airport authorities following public clamor to allow carriage of folded umbrellas in both cabin and checked baggage .

As posted on its official Facebook page, the OTS however, still maintains the prohibition of cane umbrellas in carry-on bags.
