Go through security with zero stress
- The security checkpoint is located on the first floor of Hall D.
- We remind passengers that they need to be at the boarding gate at least 30 minutes before take-off.
Before going through security, have your boarding pass ready: you will need to swipe it in order to go through the automatic doors and then show it to the security officer.
To ensure security clearance is as smooth as possible, the airport advises you to arrive in good time and take as little hand luggage as possible.
When you go through security screening:
- Take off your coat and jacket.
Place the following items in the trays provided:
- All large electrical and electronic devices: laptops, large digital cameras, DVD players, etc.
- Any metal object you may be carrying (phone, keyring, etc.)
- Your clear plastic bag containing authorised liquids (max. bag size: 20 x 20 cm / Products: max. 100 ml / 100 g)
- Medication along with the prescription
- Baby food
- Items purchased from the airport shops, which will usually have been placed in a sealed plastic bag by sales staff
Tip: As a general rule, place all liquids in your checked baggage for carriage in the hold, except for items that are absolutely essential for your journey. If you are only travelling with hand luggage, you will need to place your authorised liquids in a clear plastic bag - like a freezer bag - measuring around 20 cm x 20 cm (you must be able to close the bag).
Security officers are there to guide you - follow their instructions.
- In line with the regulations in force, security officers are authorised to open your bags and carry out physical screening.
- You may also be asked to take off your shoes and belt, as these items may contain metal parts.
- If you are travelling with a specific medical device (pacemaker, prosthetic device or implant, treatment, etc.), report the device to the security staff and show them your medical certificate.
Which items are you not allowed to take in the cabin?
Some items are not permitted in the aircraft cabin, while others are subject to restrictions. Here is a non-exhaustive list to answer your questions.
- Revolvers, firearms and other items that fire projectiles
- Stunning devices
- Items with a sharp tip or sharp edges
- Work tools
- Blunt instruments
- Explosive and flammable substances and devices
Certain items are not permitted in the aircraft cabin, while others are subject to restrictions. The following items are permitted on board:

- Medication (with a prescription).
How can I retrieve any items that were rejected at security?
If you tried to go through security carrying an item that is not permitted in the aircraft cabin, even if the item in question was packed in your hand luggage, it will be taken by security staff. In such cases, you have several options:
- Entrust the item to someone you know who is not travelling and is still in the airport, in the pre-security area.
- Place the item in the airport storage facilities, and collect it from the information desk when you return from your trip. The security officer will ask you to fill in a document before sending your item to the storage collection point (more information).
- Go back to the check-in area and check the bag containing the unauthorised item (provided it is permitted in the hold).
- Leave the item and have it destroyed by staff on site.
