The check-in area is located in the Departures (left) side of the terminal. Make sure you have your ticket information and passport handy and proceed to your chosen airline’s counter. Before you arrive, it’s always a good idea to check luggage requirements with your chosen airline.

Powders, Liquids, Aerosols & Gels

Don’t forget, for international flights all liquids, aerosols and gels over 100ml must be packed in your checked luggage so if you’ve got cosmetics, a jar of Vegemite, or a bottle of mango wine pack it  in your suitcase before you check-in. You can take liquids, aerosols and gels in your carry-on luggage as long as they are in containers of a maximum of 100ml, and are in a clear zip lock bag ready to be scanned at the security check point.

Powders: From 30 June 2018, all international departing flights will have restrictions in place limiting inorganic powders to volumes less than 350ml per passenger in the aircraft cabin. Passengers will be required to present all powders in their carry-on baggage separately for screening.

Security Screening

Once you’ve checked-in you’ll proceed through Border Protection for clearance then to the Security Screening point. Here you’ll pass through the metal detector and all your carry-on luggage will be x-ray screened. There’s also a random full body screening and  explosive trace detection process at this screening point.
