Travel Your guide to...

Getting through security checks at the airport

To make sure your holidays are a relaxing experience, be prepared before you hop on the plane. Aviation security has been increased over the last years, and there are a set of rules and procedures that passengers have to follow before boarding a plane. Each airport has a “sterile” area where passengers must be screened before entry. The security check includes a body examination of the passengers and their carry-on luggage. Some airports have full-body x-ray scanners whereas others still rely on older metal detectors. If the alarm goes off, you will

usually be examined by security staff with a patdown. Staff will also advise you to place your carryon luggage, as well as jackets, belts and other larger object that you carry, on a conveyer belt so it can be screened. If you wear boots, you might be asked to take them off. If any suspicious items show up on the screen, security staff might be searched it in your presence. Staff also picks out passengers to test them and their luggage for bombs in a quick procedure. In all countries, it is forbidden to carry various items onto the cabin of an aircraft

that are believed to have the potential to harm passengers and crew. The restrictions vary by country, but some items are universally banned. They include firearms, knives, scissors, Explosives, flammable liquids, matches and lighters, large sports equipment (like bats, sticks and clubs), and tools. Containers that hold cosmetic and drinking liquids must be 100 millilitres or less. However, you are allowed to carry an empty drinking bottle with you. Keep all liquids in one bag to speed up the security check.

I did enjoy it all. I thought the tour of the South Island was great. I appreciated the info you gave us all as we went along. It was good to have time in so many towns too.

Now, when I am watching TV, I see places that we have been to and roads we went along. And of course, with this cold weather, I can say I know these towns!! -Lois
