Tips to speed up your passage through security

To ensure your passage through the airport and security is as quick and hassle-free as possible, check out the following tips:

  1. Make sure you arrive in plenty of time – 2-3 hours before your flight
  2. All liquids must be in a re-sealable, clear plastic bag – remove this from your hand luggage before you get to security
  3. Have your boarding pass ready for inspection (passports are not required at security)
  4. Coats and jackets are screened separately so remove these
  5. Remove coins and metal items from your person before passing through the scanner
  6. Be prepared – you may need to remove your shoes and belt before passing though the scanner
  7. Remove large electrical items from you hand luggage - laptops, iPads, tablet - these are screened separately
  8. Ensure all portable electrical devices in your hand luggage are charged – this includes mobile phones, iPads, Kindles, laptops etc. If an electronic item doesn't switch on, it may not be permitted onto the aircraft
  9. Do not attempt to carry any sharp items, or prohibited items, in your hand luggage.
