The safety and security of our passengers and visitors is our top priority. On-site security measures are regularly monitored and the airport continues to meet stringent security standards set by the Federal Government.

Domestic passengers, friends and loved ones must be screened before entering the sterile area (the secure part of the terminal). Personal effects are screened and people entering must pass through a full-body scanner. This is supplemented by random checks for explosives. Please refer to your airline for specific information about baggage.
