Preflight security check includes both X-raying the luggage as well as checking the passengers pursuant to the requirements established in the Regulation (EC) No 2320/200 of the European Parliament and of the Council.
Preflight security check
Passengers and articles carried by passengers shall go through an inspection for security purposes. The unaccompanied luggage shall go through a security check immediately after registering the luggage.
In case it is discovered that passenger or his/her luggage holds articles/substances, carrying of which on board of the aircraft is prohibited, it is possible for the passenger to place these items to an unaccompanied luggage. Of course this applies in case it is altogether allowed to carry these articles/substances in the unaccompanied luggage of the aircraft. Passenger can also hand these articles/substances to an acquaintance accompanying the passenger to the airport.
Detailed information about the requirements of the flight security inspection is available at the website of the Estonian Civil Aviation Administration (http://www.ecaa.ee/atp/?id=1479).
Prior to the preflight security check
For a quicker and more comfortable preflight security check before going through the security check we ask to place keys, phone, wallet, change etc. from pockets to hand luggage or to the pockets of overalls, as for example keys left to the trousers' pockets can cause alarm when going through the metal detector.
When arriving at the security check place your hand luggage, overalls (jacket, suit jacket, coat etc) to the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine. Also laptop needs to be taken out of hand luggage and placed thereto. Pursuant to the requirements of flight safety pack the liquids taken to the cabin to 1-litre transparent plastic bag and place them on the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine.
