Baggage Security

NEVER leave baggage or personal belongings unattended in or around the terminal, as they will be removed and may be destroyed. Please be sure baggage checked in or taken with you on your flight belongs only to you.

Do not accept parcels or packages that belong to others (even friends), unless you can check the contents yourself. In the event of a passenger carrying an item for another person, this information must be declared.
