We would advise you that all hand luggage passes strict controls including a radioscopic inspection. Our security agents will visualize on screen the contents of your luggage. A manual inspection may also be requested.

If you have a pace-maker or other implanted device (ie insulin pump, hearing aid etc) please advise the security officer prior to passing the security screening gate. The control will then take place manually.

Your cooperation is kindly appreciated when completing security checks – remember, these are in place for your own safety. All controls are made prior to entering the boarding room.

Please note that for security reasons mobile phones must be switched off within the boarding area of the aircraft. Taking photos is also strictly forbidden once you have entered the boarding room.
