How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Chennai

If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport restaurants and less time wading through security on your way to Chennai, just follow these handy tips:

  • Security personnel will ask to see your passport and boarding pass at the checkpoint. Keep them in a convenient place, so they're all ready for inspection.
  • It's important to know that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to take it off before moving forward.
  • Make sure your laptop and electronic devices are within easy reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine in separate tubs.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to place all liquids, gels and creams in a separate tub for inspection. Make sure they're all packed in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Give some thought to the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to slip out of for the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • The list of prohibited items is forever changing. Browse your carrier's website to understand what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
