How to Fly Through Security at Liverpool John Lennon Airport

How to fly through security

To help your journey through security go as smoothly as possible:

  • Remove coats, hats, scarves, belts and heeled shoes or boots before you reach the front of the security queue.
  • Pre-prepare your liquids in 100ml containers and keep them separate from your hand luggage, in a clear resealable 20x20cm bag. Plastic bags are available to buy from vending machines at Security, 4 bags for £1.
