Security control

Before you enter your gate a security control of your person and hand luggage takes place

  • Every passenger has to remove metal objects before passing through a metal detector frame. If you are carrying liquids with you, you must put the cointainers with liquids in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which is to be shown to the security personnel.
  • Please note the permissible maximum size of hand luggage. There are no international standards for hand luggage. The weight and size vary depending on the airline, class and route.
