Airport Security

From 1 July 2012, the Australian Government introduced changes to the aviation security arrangements at most regional airports.

Tamworth Regional Airport was one of the airports which implemented these legislated changes.

Passengers and their carry-on and checked in baggage are security screened before boarding their flights by new technology including:

  • walk through metal detectors
  • hand held metal detectors
  • x-ray machines for carry-on and checked baggage
  • explosive trace detection

Important passenger information:

  • ensure you are at the airport at least one hour before your flight is scheduled to depart
  • a Screening Officer may ask to look in your bag instead of using an X-Ray machine
  • computers and aerosol cans need to be taken out of your carry baggage and placed in a plastic tub provided for individual screening
  • if you have a heart pacemaker or other medical conditions which may be affected by X-Ray, advise the security screening staff as you may not be required to go through the walk through metal detector
  • steel capped boots, large buckle belts and some ladies jewellery and shoes which include metal parts will need to be removed and screened separately
  • hats, caps and overcoats need to be removed and placed in the plastic tubs for screening
Passengers who have not experienced aviation security screening before can visit  to familiarise themselves with what to expect at an aviation security screening point.  You will also find examples of items that are not permitted to be carried on board an aircraft.
