Preparing for Security Search

Everything you need to know for a smooth security experience

To ensure a smooth start to your journey, we recommend all passengers arrive allowing enough time to check in and transit through security - please bear in mind that check-in and security can get busy during peak times.

Some airlines open check-in up to 3.5 hours before the flights scheduled departure time - we recommend passengers refer to the information provided by their airline with regards to when to arrive at the Airport.

On your next visit, you will notice we have recently implemented 'next-generation' security machines within our security search area. This means passengers can now leave liquids and electrical items in their hand baggage during security screening - making the process quicker and more efficient.


Our top tips to prepare for security

With a little preparation, you can ensure your journey through security is as hassle-free as possible.

1. Empty your pockets and place all liquids, electronics and other personal items in your hand baggage before arriving at security

2. On arrival to the search area, put your coat or jacket in the tray and place your hand baggage securely on top

3. Follow the Security Officer's instructions through the body scanner and collect your belongings on the other side


Please note, the rules for security search have changed recently.

The Government has implemented a restriction on liquids carried by passengers in their hand luggage. Any liquids, aerosols or gels being carried in hand luggage must be in containers of up to 100ml.
