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 at the security checkpoint on your way to Chennai, just follow these practical tips:

  • Have your travel ID and boarding pass somewhere accessible. They'll be the first things you'll be instructed to produce by airport security personnel.
  • Take off your belt and shoes before approaching security. Items such as these are not allowed to pass through the body scanner.
  • Electronic goods such as tablets, laptops and phones are always put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all gels, liquids and creams in a separate bin for scanning. Make sure they're all stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Undo your shoelaces before approaching the body scanner. Depending on the style of shoes you're wearing, security may instruct you to take them off.
  • Put any multi-tools or other sharp and pointy items in your checked luggage. Security personnel don't allow these aboard the aircraft.
