Gatwick Airport issues advice for passengers travelling this weekend

With around 400,000 passengers expected to flock to Gatwick Airport in search of a welcome half-term break, the airport has issued the following advice to help passengers avoid delays when passing through security:

  • Plan your journey to the airport and arrive at least two hours before your flight departs.
  • Check with your airline on restrictions that apply to both hand and checked-in baggage.
  • Liquids in hand baggage must be in individual containers no greater that 100ml capacity and placed in a transparent re-sealable bag, no larger than 20 cm x 20 cm (8” x 8”) in size.
  • Hand baggage: In many cases passengers can take more than one item of hand baggage per person through security providing any bag has maximum dimensions of 56 cm x 45 cm x 25 cm (22” x 17.7” x 10”). However, some airlines continue to permit only one bag and passengers are advised to check their airline’s baggage policy.
  • Pack all sharp objects, such as knives and scissors in baggage you’re checking-in. They must not be carried in hand luggage.
