How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Kota Kinabalu

These useful tips about airport security will save you a lot of time on your journey to Kota Kinabalu:

  • Security personnel will request to see your boarding pass and travel ID as part of their checks. Have them in an accessible place, so they're all ready for inspection.
  • Coins, belts and wrist watches should be put in a tray for X-raying. If you walk into the body scanner with any of these items, you'll be asked to turn back and remove them.
  • Ensure your electronic devices and laptop are easy to reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine separately.
  • When you get to the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all creams, liquids and gels in a separate tub for scanning. Make sure they're all packed in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider your choice of footwear. Slippers are awesome because they're a cinch to take off when you're at the security checkpoint. Try wearing a pair on your next journey!
  • The list of prohibited items is forever changing. Check with your airline's official website to understand what is not allowed on board their flights.
*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
