Increase Security - All Airport
All airports enforce very strict security measures. You should take great care to ensure your luggage has been packed by you. If items are confiscated from your hand luggage at security control they won't be returned unless there are exceptional circumstances, nor will compensation be available. In addition you may be arrested or detained and miss your flight. As a general guideline, plan to arrive at the airport one hour prior to scheduled departure for UK domestic flights and two hours prior to scheduled departure for international flights. Enhanced security now in place at most Airports can take time, so please be patient with any additional personal luggage searches, to speed along the process only carry the one piece of hand luggage.
