Procedures for passing through security checkpoints in boarding areas.
Security: Security checkpoints
Passengers accessing boarding areas must pass through a a metal-detector arch at a security checkpoint and their hand luggage and any other objects that they are carrying (coats, jackets, mobile phones, keys) must undergo an x-ray inspection. Passengers may also be subjected to ongoing random manual inspections.
Before going through the security checkpoint, passengers will be asked for their boarding pass.
To help objects pass through the scanner, particularly in the case of small articles, you must use the special trays available to passengers.
- Take off their jacket and/or overcoat and put them in the tray. These items must be examined separately whilst passengers are being inspected.
- Take their laptop computer, or any other large electrical item, out of its case and place it in the tray so that it can be inspected separately from the case and the rest of their hand luggage at the security checkpoints.
- It is also recommended that passengers remove their belts before passing through the metal-detector arch.
Passengers who for health reasons have implants (pacemakers, cochlear implants, etc.) or appliances such as metal prostheses must inform security personnel of their situation before going through the metal detectors, so that they can be inspected manually.
Security personnel may also ask passengers to remove their shoes for inspection.
