Security

To make your journey as smooth as possible and avoid unnecessary delays, we ask that you pay special attention to our security procedure.

All passengers must pass through security control before boarding your aircraft on aircraft over 10 tonnes. Private jets such as Embraer Legacy 500, Hawker 800XP, Embraer Legacy 650, Gulfstream G550 and Dassault Falcon 900EX to name a few. Prior to your booking we will notify you of the time you need to arrive at the terminal to ensure you get through security screening as quickly as possible.

Hand Baggage

We would remind all passengers that each airline has their own policy regarding the amount of hand baggage allowed on their aircraft and we strongly recommend that information regarding this is sought directly from the operator before travel. The current restrictions on the size of hand baggage taken into the restricted area of the airport remain in place with no bag larger than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm being permitted.

If under 100ml and in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag, passengers are permitted to take liquids, gels and pastes through security separately from their hand baggage.

It is best to prepare your liquid bag no larger than 20cm x 20cm, not exceeding one litre, before arrival at the terminal. They are however available if you forget to bring your own. The bag must be one litre, which is around half the size of a standard A4 piece of paper and it must be sealable.

Please note – if you wish to bring your own containers to hold 100ml or less, the container must have printed on it the measurement that the container can hold. Travel sets of containers that do not have measurements on them will not be allowed through security. Handwritten measurements or stickers are also not acceptable.

Laptops and other electrical equipment (iPads, hairdryers, straighteners, large speakers, large cameras, docking stations, irons) have to be removed from hand luggage and screened separately.

If you’re flying to the USA please ensure electrical devices are charged and capable of being switched on.

Medicines and Baby Foods

When travelling with a baby you’re allowed to take enough baby food, baby milk and sterilised water for the journey. In some cases this will be over 100ml.

You can carry breast milk in hand luggage even if you’re not travelling with a baby. You can’t carry frozen breast milk in hand luggage.

Individual containers of breast milk must hold no more than 2,000ml. Each container will need to be screened at the security point. Airport staff might need to open the containers to screen the liquids.

  • Breast milk / in containers up to 2,000ml

A baby is considered to be 0-36 months old.

A passenger may take prescription medication in containers over 100ml through security, provided that they have a prescription or doctors note for the medication. The passenger may only carry through security the quantity of liquid medication that is required for their journey.

Passengers will be able to buy liquids including drinks and perfumes in duty free and other stores after security control, or on board the aircraft. If they are sold in a special sealed bag, passengers must not open them before they are screened otherwise the contents may be confiscated at the security checkpoint.
