Safety and SecuritySafety and security are our highest priority. We would like to assure you that BAA's airports, in full cooperation with the government, the airlines and all our other business partners are always working to ensure your safety.
Before departing for the airport please check your flight is on time and confirm what time your airline requires you to check in. Please be patient if you have to queue at the check-in desks, security control or your gate – the security checks we employ as you pass through the airport, ensure the safety of all our passengers.
At the airport
Please don't be concerned by the security checks or by the presence of armed police at the airport. This is for your safety and your cooperation with searches would be appreciated. Please make sure your keep your baggage with you at all times and alert staff to any unattended package or bag – abandoned baggage causes security alerts and may be removed and destroyed.
Security control and boarding
To reach the departure lounges you will pass through security control where your boarding card will be inspected and you and your hand luggage screened. You need to remove jackets and coats and place them with your hand luggage (including handbags, cameras, mobile phones, computers, calculators, keys, coins, etc) in trays or on the belt to pass through the x-ray machine.
Passengers pass through an archway metal detector, which is safe for pregnant women, however, if you have any concerns you can request a hand search. Passengers with pacemakers should request a hand search, and wheelchair users will also have a hand search. Hand searches can take place in a private, screened area for the comfort of our passengers.
Some passengers and/or flights may be selected for additional searches at security control or at the departure gate; including hand searches supported by explosives trace detection equipment. Passengers are chosen at random for these searches – please don't be concerned or offended. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us ensure the safety and security of all passengers.
Help us reduce the queues at security control by ensuring that you do not pack prohibited items in your hand luggage or hold baggage. The following items must not be packed in your hand luggage. They must be placed in your hold baggage. If these items are discovered in your hand luggage they will be confiscated and not returned:
Scissors (except where both blades are round-ended or less than three centimetres).
Razor blades (razors that have the blade set into a plastic moulding are allowed, but razors that can be opened and the razor blade removed are prohibited).
Knives with blades of any length.
Household cutlery (large spoons/tablespoons are NOT permitted, however small teaspoons are allowed).
Hypodermic needles (unless required for medical reasons, for which proof will be required).
Tools (including multi-tools and penknives).

Planning your Journey
If you have a special need and may require assistance on your journey, the key to a successful trip is planning:
Compare the arrangements offered by different airlines before making your booking. Our Useful Links page has details of some specialist travel companies that could help you in the planning of your trip.
Be sure to check whether the cost of any special assistance is included in the price of your ticket.
Inform your airline of your particular needs in good time.
Check the policy of your airline if you wish to remain in your own wheelchair to the aircraft door rather than transfer to an airline wheelchair at check-in.
Bear in mind that there are often long walking distances within airports and even if you are usually fairly mobile you may need extra assistance for this reason.
Have a look at the facilities and assistance available in and around the airport – you will find information through the links in the menu to the left.
Several of our airports have specialist groups that offer assistance to passengers at the airport, you will find details of these, where available, on the In the Terminal page for the airport you are travelling from.
Make sure that your insurance policy covers any equipment that you may need to take with you.
Assistance dogs can only travel if they are registered with The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) and if allowed by your airline and holiday destination.
