Baggage safety regulations

If you intend to fly, you must comply with strict security checks. These security checks primarily relate to what you, as a passenger, are allowed to take with you onto the aircraft. A check is made on the carriage of hazardous substances and items that could pose a danger to the passengers, crew and/or the safety of the aircraft. The security checks take place in the form of a manual check and/or using detection equipment on both your hand baggage and your hold baggage.
