Can I pack that?
There are a large number of items that you simply cannot take on-board an aircraft in your hand luggage.
Prohibited items must be surrendered at the passenger screening point. These include, but are not limited to:
- Blunt objects capable of bludgeoning or threatening to bludgeon a person (cricket bat, snooker cue, fishing rods longer than 48cm (either collapsed or in their entirety)
- Sharp items (knife, scissors, waiters friend, screwdriver, sewing kits)
- Dangerous goods (aerosols with no lid, fireworks, flammable items, poisons)
- Items capable of restraining a person (fishing line, cable ties, tape, rope, oki straps)
- Weapons (firearms, explosives)
Due to the number of items passing through security, it is not possible to list them all. Security screening officers and the airline are responsible for ensuring security standards are met and have the final say about what items are permitted. Check with your airline before travel as they may have additional restrictions.
Security screening staff assess items based on current security regulations and risks associated with each individual item. Albury Airport receives large amounts of surrendered items on a daily basis, as such these items cannot be returned. The best measure is to leave these items at home before you fly or pack them in your checked-in baggage..
A wide range of articles and substances such as pesticides, petrol, acids, aerosols and bleaches are considered dangerous goods. These items are not allowed on aircraft as they are capable of posing significant risk to health and safety when transported by air.
