Strict rules still apply at airports with regards to the transport of liquids, aerosols and gels in hand baggage. Passengers are prohibited from bringing into dedicated security areas, as well as on board aircraft fire arms and their replicas, incapacitating instruments, explosive and flammable substances, sharp objects, trademan’s tools and blunt objects, which have the potential to cause considerable injury. From the 1st September 2015 extended EU Commission regulations on security with regard to the control of explosives will come into force at European airports and hence also at Bratislava Airport. When going through the regular security check, some passengers will, in addition, be swiped by special samplers on hand luggage, on wearing, on belts, on hands or on other stuff. Those samplers will be checked again. A taking samplers have no inffluence on passengers health.
The prohibited items list is for information purposes only. Security control personnel have the right to refuse to let some objects, which might raise rightful suspicion about their possible misuse and endangering the safety of a civil flight on board flight.
