  • Wear fitted clothing and low shoes

    For a smoother security check, wear fitted clothing and low shoes. That way, you won't have to take anything off.

    Pack smart. Check what you're allowed to bring onto the plane and what the rules are regarding liquids and electronics.

  • Book a free timeslot

    From now on, you can go through security at a time of your choice, as long as you reserve a time slot.
