Security Search FAQs: What to expect at Inverness Airport

What to expect when taking cabin baggage

Your cabin bag will be screened by X-ray equipment, in line with UK regulatory requirements.  Your baggage may also be searched by hand and swabbed for the detection of explosives by one of our highly trained security operatives.  In addition, a test may be undertaken of liquid containers within your clear plastic bag.

Your bag may be selected for one of two reasons:

  • the X-ray operator believes a prohibited or restricted item is present; or
  • random selection testing, which we are required to undertake to meet UK regulatory requirements
