Our security procedures are designed to protect your safety and security when travelling through the airport.
Passenger Security Processes:
Check-in: The check-in area is the last point at which you can place sharp items and liquids over 100 ml into your hold luggage. If you do not, these will be confiscated at the next security point as they are not permitted in the aircraft cabin. You must also ensure that you are not carrying any dangerous goods in either your hold or cabin luggage.
Central security search:
After the Immigration checkpoint you and your cabin luggage will be screened. See Traveler Tips on how to prepare for this process.
Here are some tips to speed up your progress through security control:
• Only carry items in your hand luggage that you really need for your journey, the rest should be checked in as hold luggage.
• Do not carry any liquids, gels, creams, pastes or aerosols in your hand luggage unless essential for your journey. If you do need to carry these items make sure they are in containers of less than 100 ml volume and packed in a clear plastic bag (travelling with liquids)
• Place any metal objects (mobile phones, MP3 players, keys, coins, watches, belts with metal buckles) inside your hand luggage
• Take your laptop out of your bag and place it in a tray for screening through the X-ray
• Do not carry any sharp items (prohibited items) in your hand luggage. These should be packed in your hold luggage.
Travelling with liquids:
Only limited amounts of liquids may be carried through security control in hand luggage. The following restrictions apply to all liquids, creams, gels, pastes and aerosols (including bottled drinks, cosmetics, perfumes and other cosmetics)
• Liquids may only be carried in containers holding up to a maximum of 100 ml
• They must be carried in a single, transparent, re-sealable plastic bag (no larger than 20 cm x 20cm) and all items must fit inside so that it closes
• At security the bag should be removed from hand luggage and placed in a tray for X-ray screening
