For our security screening partner SNP, the health and safety of our customers and team is and always will be our top priority. Please remember to stay home if you are unwell.
Passenger security screening
Under Australian Federal law all passengers are subject to aviation security screening. All visitors who choose to go through security screening to farewell your family, friends and colleagues are also subject to screening.
Albury Airport uses walk-through metal detectors, x-ray machines and explosive trace detection (ETD) equipment to detect items specified in the Aviation Transport Security Regulations 2005.
Our screening officers' endeavour to treat all passengers with dignity and respect during these processes. For information on transporting specific devices and items on aircraft, contact your individual airline carrier. For more information on airport screening, visit Australian Government National Security.
Checked-in baggage is also subject to security screening. Albury Airport uses a number of methods, including s-ray examination, physical search and testing for chemical residues using explosive trace detection equipment.
Getting Through Security Quickly
By following these simple tips, passing through security can be made even easier:
- Take laptops, tablets and any large electrical items out of bags and place on a tray.
- If wearing a bulky over garment (coat, parka or bulky jacket) please remove and place on the x-ray observation equipment conveyor belt.
- Put small personal effects into your hand baggage if you have it; this will save time at the screening point and minimise the chance of leaving anything behind.
- Trays are provided for larger items such as handbags, shoes and laptops.
- Some shoes contain metal and may need screening (e.g. steel cap boots).
Information for Passengers with Special Assistance
The comfort of our customers is very important to us. We are continuously reviewing our processes and procedures to ensure travellers with special needs can pass through the airport with the minimum amount of hassle and fuss.
The screening point is equipped with seats and our screening staff will assist and make provision for people with mobility issues. Items such as prams, wheelchairs will need to be screened separately. Security personnel will guide passengers and visitors on this separate screening process.
Medical Implants & Artificial Limbs/Prostheses
Please advise the screening officer and request separate screening to avoid passing through any machines that may affect pacemakers, cochlear implants or other devices.
Walking aids must be screened and as such may require x-ray or explosive trace detection. Screening points have chairs and walking aids available during this process.
Travelling with Children
Prams and strollers will be screened and allowed entry past the security screening point. Infants and toddlers should be removed from the pram/stroller for the search. Where possible, check with your airline regarding their own rules for carriage of prams or strollers on board the aircraft.
