Security At The Airport

Make sure you leave plenty of time to not only arrive at the airport, but importantly to pass through the airport too. Liverpool John Lennon Airport recommends passengers arrive a minimum of 2 hours before departure to allow sufficient time to check-in, pass through airport security and to take advantage of the many new passenger facilities now available in the departure lounge.

All passengers are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure they arrive at the Departure Gate at the published boarding time as stipulated by their airline.

Security Scanner

Liverpool John Lennon Airport has introduced a new state-of-the-art, non invasive body scanning technology in response to new regulations put in place by the UK Department for Transport. Click here for more information.

In addition, we are happy to offer a revised shopping bag allowance. You can now take one standard sized airport shopping bag on ANY flight in addition to your hand luggage.  Click here for more information on Shopping Allowance.
