Security control

In order to facilitate security checks, we recommend that passengers have their passport / boarding pass ready as well as all hand luggage that must be scanned.
We recommend that you have already:

  • placed cosmetics, perfumes and other liquids (each unit less than 100 ml) in clear plastic bags. The bags should be packed so that they are easily accessible, as they must be scanned separately.
  • removed laptops and other larger electronics from the bag.
  • taken off coats and jackets, removed belts and emptied pockets.
  • You may be requested to remove your shoes and have them scanned.
