Important Notice

As we continue to recover from the pandemic and passenger numbers grow, security queues may be longer than usual at times.

Our colleagues are working tirelessly to process passengers as quickly as possible and we apologise to anyone impacted by recent disruption.

In order to help make your journey as smooth as possible, passengers are asked not to arrive more than three hours before their flight. Those who arrive earlier than that may be asked to wait away from the check-in area until the recommended time for passing through security. This is to reduce waiting times in both security and the departure lounge. We appreciate your understanding.

It is also important passengers understand the latest rules about cabin bags, to avoid their hand luggage being rejected at security. Rejected bags can cause significant delays for all concerned.

Please ensure:

• All liquids and gels you are carrying are 100ml or less and placed in a clear, sealable bag, this includes hand sanitiser.

• All large electrical items are removed from your bag and placed in a tray separately.

It also makes a significant difference if you minimise the number of trays you need to use, so please consider that when preparing to come to the airport.
