Security checks at the airport

Australians make almost fifty million trips at home and nearly six million trips overseas each year. For this reason it is essential that our airports have the best preventive security measures in place to keep travellers secure.

Every passenger and every bag boarding an international flight is screened to counter a potential terrorist attack or other criminal activities. While security checks can seem an inconvenience, remember they are in place to protect us all.

This site provides information on the baggage and passenger screening processes in place at Australian international airports.
