What to do at security

To reduce the time spent at security, we would suggest that you be prepared before reaching the metal detector and follow the instructions shown on the screens, by taking off everything that if detected, could require a more thorough check of you and your luggage. Put the following articles in the trays provided at security: electrical/electronic items, jackets, coats, metal objects, watches, wallets, purses, keys, belts, buckles, etc. Remember that it is not permitted to wear or carry in your hand luggage objects that can be used as weapons (metal files, scissors, golf clubs, etc.), explosives or flammable, poisonous, toxic and infectious substances. A list of objects not allowed on board is displayed at the check-in desk.

Safety regulations: what liquids/fluids is it possible to take on-board?

European law in force since 2006 limits but does not prohibit liquids in hand luggage (perfumes, creams, shaving foam, cosmetics, toothpaste, etc.).
The rules provided for in the EU regulations are mandatory, thus, the security officers are obliged to enforce them to the letter. We suggest that you bring a resealable plastic bag with you to the airport, in order to avoid delays or hitches. If you do not have a resealable transparent plastic bag, you can find it in apposite dispensers close to security checks.
Once you have gone through security, the purchase of liquids is not subject to any restrictions: in fact, the shops at the airport provide sealed bags to carry liquids in until boarding.

 

What items are prohibited?

Items that could be used as weapons (e.g. scissors, knives, files, umbrellas with metal tips) of any size are not allowed on board. EU legislation on the transport of liquids does not allow you to carry in your hand baggage more than 1 litre; the containers for creams, gels and other liquids should have a maximum capacity of 100 millilitres (1/10 of a litre, or 100 grams) and should be put in a sealable transparent plastic bag. For further information please see the ENAC Regulations.

In hand luggage it is prohibited to transport any type of fire-arm or knife, explosives and ammunition, unless they are accompanied by a permit issued by the competent authorities.
