Passenger security screening

Under Australian Federal law all passengers are subject to aviation security 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.

The screening point is equipped with seats and our screening staff will assist and make provision for people with mobility issues.

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. Further information can be found on the Australian Government National Security web page
