EU Aviation Security Regulations for Passengers-PDF
In order to ensure the security of air-traffic it is essential that check-point inspections are enforced as smoothly as possible and as professional as needed.
The following information gives you an overview of the required security measures.
Liquids such as, gels, pastes, lotions, liquid mixtures und solids such as the contents of pressurized containers, for example toothpaste, hair gel, beverages, soups, syrups, perfume, shaving cream, aerosols and other articles with a similar consistency in hand baggage will be limited to 100ml per container. These containers have to fit into a transparent, resalable, maximum 1 liter in volume plastic bag (see below) and must be shown at the security check-point. The plastic bag (i.e. a resalable freezer bag) has to be completely closed. If you do not have a plastic bag, you can receive one at the airport
Exceptions to these restrictions are possible if the liquid is needed during the flight for medical or special dietetic purposes. The same applies to baby food.
Please inform yourself at the information-signs at the airport about further details.
Check-In baggage/Accompanied baggage
Before your check-in baggage (accompanied baggage) can be loaded into the aircraft it must go through an aviation security check/examination. This happens after check-in.
In individual cases opening the baggage will take place. You will be notified by an aviation security assistant that will carry out opening the baggage in your presence.
Please have your boarding pass ready when approaching the security check, this will be checked when entering.
Persons and hand baggage/carry-on security check
Never leave your baggage unattended. Every baggage will be removed by security staff. Be aware of airport security measures have your ID and passports always with you because aditional inspections are possible any time be careful and warn the airport staff on every unattended baggage Dont accept any baggage of unknown person.
Your person and your carry-on baggage will be examined for forbidden objects. You place all your baggage on the X-Ray conveyor belt.
Please put/place in the provided plastic tubs:
- Outerwear, such as coats and jackets
- Laptop computer, separate from the respective bag
- Small objects, such as coins, telephone, keys etc.
So that unnecessary delays at the security check can be avoided, we ask you to have the items ready before the check-point.
Limitation for carry-on/hand baggage
Hand baggage can not exceed 56cm x 45cm x 25cm in size. The measurements include the handle, bands and belts, pockets, wheels and other protruding parts, to include the somewhat protruding parts of the baggage content itself. (in effect beginning May 2007).
Please note that sharp objects such as pocket knives, scissors, tools, etc. may not be carried in your carry-on luggage. This applies to fishing poles, laces and clamps as well. Such articles must therefore be packed in your check-in luggage.
Tip: Gas canisters, combustible liquids, spirit burners, Zippo- and other gas lighters, etc. may not be carried.
For your own safety and for the safety of others: Never leave your luggage in the airport area without personal supervision (violations can result in legal consequences).
