Controls and security

Security controls at Stansted airport are particularly scrupulous, so make sure to arrive sufficiently early. During rush hours, in fact, you might take 45 minutes to 1 hours to pass the security controls.

Security controls before boarding

Before reaching the boarding gate you need to pass through the barrier of the police security controls, where your tickets and luggage will be checked. In order to speed up the controls and to avoid repeated passages through the metal detector, it is recommendable to remove all metal objects, and deposit them into the appropriate containers provided at the barrier. Once you have passed through the security barrier, you can pick up your belongings.

Pregnant women and pacemaker bearers

Although the metal detector is considered safe for pregnant women, however, you can ask for a hand search, in order to avoid the X-ray screening. This is valid also for passengers with pacemaker.

Casual controls

Some passengers might be selected for a more accurate control, in order to avoid the presence of explosive into the cabin. These controls are absolutely casual and they are normally carried out into an appropriate private room.
