Airport security measures have heightened at all major Australian domestic and international airports, meaning longer waits and increased security screenings. Passengers should not be concerned as these are precautionary safety measures.
What does this mean for travellers?
The Australian Government has advised travellers to:
- Arrive at the airport at least two hours before domestic flights and at least three hours before international flights
- Limit carry on and checked luggage to ensure efficient and timely security screening
- Expect extra scrutiny and delays when passing through security screening
- There are no changes to what can and cannot be carried on-board the aircraft
Where can I find further information about the additional security measures?
