London Airport Security - Boarding Card

Firstly, at security you only need your boarding card, so have it ready, you don’t need your passport at London airport security.

London Airport Security - Toiletries & Liquids

All toiletries, aftershaves, perfumes and cosmetics (in containers of 100ml or less) need to be contained in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag (maximum size 20cm x 20cm) for security staff to x-ray separately. Make sure you have the plastic bag ready before you get to security, otherwise you will be delayed.

London Airport Security - Large Electrical Goods

Laptops, iPads, hair dryers, iPods or other large electrical items will need x-raying separately. Make sure you have these items ready prior to security. Digital cameras and mobile phones can be left in your hand baggage or jacket to be x-rayed.

London Airport Security - Coats & Jackets

Remove your coats and jackets before arriving at security as they need to be screened separately, while you walk through the security archway. You may also be asked to remove your belt and shoes.

Airport Security – Baby Products

London Airport security advises that you only take what you need for your holiday, try not to take excess.

Baby wipes and powdered milk are fine but any milk or food in a paste, gel or liquid and you will be required to taste 50% of the contents.

Essential medicines including inhalers and medicines of more than 100ml’s can be carried in your hand luggage, but you must seek prior approval from your airline and have a doctor’s letter or prescription.
