Before your flight

Be Prepared and Be Early

Passengers should ensure to have all necessary, valid documentation for travel prior to arriving at the airport and should check with their air carrier and/or the country of destination regarding travel documents, immigration and customs formalities.

It is recommended that passengers check-in at the airport at least 2-3 hours prior to the departure time of their flight.

Passenger Pick-Up and Drop-Off
Arrival and Departure areas are clearly marked to allow for easy pick-up and drop-off of passengers at the airport. These areas are patrolled by police officers and their instructions should be obeyed at all times.

Carry-on baggage

Passengers requiring medication should ensure that all necessary medication be packed in their carry-on luggage or kept on their person while travelling. Items placed in checked baggage cannot be retrieved once submitted for security screening.

Liquids, Gels, Creams and Aerosols
Liquids, gels, creams and aerosols exceeding 3.4oz or 100ml are not allowed through the security checkpoints and must be placed in your checked luggage. In addition, all items must fit into a clear, zipper-top, plastic bag for examination and the bag may have a maximum size of 1 quart or 1 litre.

Examples of liquids, gels, creams and aerosols that are prohibited in carry-on baggage when they exceed 3.4oz/100ml include:
  • Lotions, cologne and perfume
  • Creamy dips and spreads (cheeses, peanut butter, etc.)
  • Food items (salsa, jams, jellies and salad dressings)
  • Soups, Gravy, Sauces, Oils and Vinegars
  • Snowglobes
  • Wine, liquor and beer
Passengers who cannot accommodate large items in their checked baggage are advised to ship these items separately or leave them at home.

Note that items purchased after the security checkpoint have been pre-screened and can be taken onto the plane.


Food is allowed to be carried with you through the security checkpoints provided that it is not a liquid, gel, cream or aerosol greater than 3.4oz or 100ml and complies with the liquid regulations described above. Please note further inspection of food items may be required by the security officers.
