Security control

What happens at the security control?

Well prepared

Faster passing through security controls

Inform yourself in advance of what to expect at the security controls. The better prepared you are, the quicker and more relaxed it is. To start, scan your boarding pass at the readers to get to the queuing area. You and your hand baggage will be monitored directly after boarding passes have been checked.

Our tips

Please take the required number of security trays yourself at the security checkpoint. In addition to your hand baggage, also place your outer clothing (jackets, coats, scarves, hats, etc.), the contents of your clothes bags, electronic devices (laptop, tablet, etc.) as well as packed and sealed fluid bags separately in the security trays.

More information on liquids in hand baggage

The security staff may ask you to take off your shoes so that they can also be x-rayed separately.

You can speed up your personal and hand baggage screening and actively help to avoid waiting times if you have the items, mentioned above, ready beforehand. In addition, do not carry any prohibited items with you and comply with the requirements for liquids in hand baggage. Collect your screened items after completing the identity check. It may be necessary to check the items you have brought with you in your presence. You may be asked to switch on cameras, laptops, tablets and other electronic devices briefly to demonstrate that they are working properly.

After placing all your items in the trays, you will go through a security scanner. When prompted, step onto it, place your feet on the markings and raise your arms above your head. If an alarm is triggered, you will have to undergo a manual follow-up check by security staff. If necessary, this may be performed in a separate cabin. Please speak directly to the security staff on-site. If you have a pacemaker, shunt or valve, please inform the staff working at the checkpoint beforehand.
