Airport Security

Please allow plenty of time to complete the security checks prior to entering the departures area. The following hints should help you to speed up the process and ensure you get to your gate on time.

Before The Airport

  • Keep your carry on luggage to an absolute minimum. One bag should be enough to carry the items you will need on board. Pack as much as possible into your checked in baggage.
