Packing Tips

To avoid bags becoming jammed on the conveyor belt, please ensure that:

  • All loose straps are tied up or removed.
  • All flaps are securely fastened.
  • Extendable handles are retracted or secured.
  • Old tags and barcodes are removed.

When deciding what to pack and what to carry as hand baggage, please bear the following in mind:

  • Don’t wrap gifts. Security staff may wish to view them, and so may unwrap them.
  • Consider putting a change of clothes, or at least underwear and a spare shirt, into your hand baggage. It can mean a little extra comfort at the end of a long-haul flight, or if hold baggage is delayed.
  • Never carry anything on to an aircraft for anyone else.
