Information to passengers

All passengers, their hand and checked luggage have to undergo screening before entering into security restricted areas. Screenings are performed at check points, manually, with technical devices and/or by combining both methods. Primary objective of the security check is to detect and prevent:

· Introduction of prohibited items into the restricted security area and later on into the aircraft, and

· Potential act of unlawful interferences (i.e. airplane hijacking, sabotage or attack with an explosive device).

List of items that cannot be taken on board a flight may be found on the List of prohibited items. Contact your airline or travel agent if you have any questions about what you can take on board.

Individual security check is available for passengers with limited movement abilities, with prosthesis and pacemakers, upon their request.

Devices used during the security check cannot damage passengers’ electronic devices (laptops, cameras, IPod etc) or photographic films
