For your safety
Security control and travel tips
Please check your luggage in with your airline in good time and make your way straight to the Federal Police security control. This way you will avoid unnecessary waiting times at the check-in desks and security checkpoints. Have your boarding card ready.
Before you pass through the metal detection arch, place all your hand baggage and any jackets or coats in the plastic trays provided. Remove any electrical equipment (e.g. laptops) from your hand baggage before placing it in the tray. Your hand baggage will be X-rayed. This does not affect cameras or films.
Please observe the restrictions on carrying liquids in hand baggage. Any liquids you do carry on board must be placed in a transparent plastic bag that is capable of being resealed and is no bigger than 1 l capacity. This must be carried separately from your other hand baggage.
All passengers with the exception of pregnant women and passengers with pacemakers must pass through the metal detection arch. If an alarm sounds, you will be searched manually by a security assistant. Women are searched by a female assistant and men by a male assistant.
For a safe, trouble-free flight, please also observe the following Federal Police tips:
- You are required to carry a cross-border travel document with you when travelling abroad, including within the European Union. Please make sure that your travel documents are still valid. Contact your local passport office for more information. Children must have their own travel documents.
- Some countries require a passport or even a visa. Before starting your journey, check the entry requirements of the country to which you are travelling. Precise information on entry requirements of other countries can be found on government websites.
- For safety reasons, certain objects such as firearms, explosives, fireworks and camping gas cylinders may not be taken onto an aircraft, or may be subject to very strict requirements. Cigarette lighters containing liquid fuel are prohibited on board.
- Never leave your baggage unattended. Never carry anything onto an aircraft for anyone you do not know, either on the outward or the return journey. Carry valuables securely about your person to guard against pickpockets.
