Baggage Security Guidelines

Security Removed Items  

These are items taken at a security check from a guest or from his/her hand baggage because they are not allowed to be carried at all as these items are classified as weapons or Dangerous Goods.  

Some items can only be accepted as checked baggage (sharp, pointed, blunt objects, tools or any toys imitating one of these items). 

This information is available at any check-in touch point; therefore once a guest declares, request the guest to include the item in his check-in baggage.  

At security control any forbidden object detected is confiscated from the guest and disposed off.
