Security Regulations

Airport International Group aims to make your trip as safe and secure as possible in coordination with various security service providers at QAIA - and in accordance with international, national and airport aviation security procedures and regulations.


Check-In Points 

From check-in to boarding the aircraft, a Passenger Reconciliation System is applied at regular intervals to confirm that the identity of the traveler matches the presented travel documents. In certain cases.


As part of safety and security requirements, ask yourself the following questions before checking in for your flight:

1. Do you own this baggage?

2. Has anyone given you anything to carry?

3. Was your baggage packed by anyone else?

4. Could have anyone interfered with your baggage after it was packed? Was it left unattended?

5. Are you carrying any prohibited items or dangerous goods in your baggage? (All checked baggage will be searched automatically to confirm that they do not contain any prohibited items or dangerous goods.)


Security Check Regulations after Passport Control


Advanced Security Technology

After stamping your passport, you will pass through the centralized security checkpoint.


All passengers and belongings will be subject to a security check at this stage. Make sure to follow the instructions below to prepare yourself for screening:

• Place your mobile phone, laptop, keys, camera, walking aid, lighter (only one is allowed per passenger), metal objects and any outer garments (jackets, hats, high heels, boots, gloves, scarves, etc.) in a tray to go through the X-ray machine.

• If the Walk Through Metal Detector (WTMD) sets off an alarm while you are passing, you will be asked to check again whether you have any other metals on your person, and to remove your belt and shoes before going through the WTMD once more. If the WTMD alarm goes off for a second time, a manual search will be conducted. In certain cases, an additional search involving Millimeter Wave Technology (MWT) may be applied.

• You may carry containers of liquids and gels in your carry-on baggage, but each container must not exceed 100mL and all should fit into a 1L security plastic bag (one bag per passenger) or your liquids could be confiscated.

• All males and females must go through the centralized security checkpoint. In some cases, a private search may be requested and conducted. Please feel free to ask. 

• Wheelchairs will be thoroughly searched.

• If you are carrying prescription medications or milk syringes, each item must be in its original container, and you must present the medical prescription. Baby milk must be declared at the security screening point.
