Passenger Screening

To avoid being delayed at the Screening Point, please remove coins, keys, mobile phones and other metallic items from your pockets or person and place them in the trays provided.  Loose batteries, large metallic items such as belt-buckles or studs, jewellery, watches or shoes with metal caps or high heels should be placed in the tray.

Cigarette lighters must be placed in the tray provided.  Remove all laptops, electronic tablets and aerosols and place them in the trays provided.

Sharp items such as scissors, screwdrivers or corkscrews cannot be taken on board.  These should be packed in your checked baggage.  If not, they must be surrendered at the screening point.  Items that are surrendered will not be held or returned.

Items such as firearms, ammunition and certain sporting goods, for example bats, skateboards and pool cues are not permitted in cabin baggage.  These items must be presented to the airline at check-in.

If you have medical implants or special needs, to minimise delays, you should make the screening staff aware, PRIOR to entering the screening point. 

If you have a joint replacement i.e., hip or knee you will be required to remove all items from your pockets, belts or any heavy jewellery you may be wearing.  This will assist in eliminating any further metal that the Walk-Through –Metal-Detector (WTMD) will detect.  Secondary screening (frisk search) will be required if you “alarm” going through the WTMD.

 Pace-makers or similar implants, requires secondary screening and will take longer than people who do not have an implant. Your permission will be required for a frisk search to occur.  Minimise delays for yourself and fellow passengers by informing screening staff as early as possible.  Secondary screening includes the use of the Hand-Held-Metal Detector (HHMD).  If you are unfamiliar the screening staff will advise you of the process.  

Quick Pick up / Drop off

For security reasons, vehicles collecting or dropping off passengers at the front of the terminal must be attended AT ALL TIMES. Any vehicle left unattended will be subject to an immediate infringement and may be towed.

Attended vehicles can only remain in the pick/up drop/off area for a maximum of 1 minute (Tow-away applies to unattended vehicles).  Twenty minute parking for $2 is also available within the Short Term Car Park.

Unattended Baggage

Baggage must never be left unattended in public areas at the airport. All such baggage will be treated as suspicious. All baggage should be clearly tagged with your contact details.
