How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Colombo

These useful tips and pointers about airport security checks will save you lots of time and energy on your journey to Colombo:

  • Make sure you know the location of your travel ID and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the line when you're asked to produce them.
  • Wallets, belts and mobile phones are to be put in a tray for X-raying. If you enter the body scanner with any of these items, you'll be turned around and requested to remove them.
  • Electronic devices such as tablets, laptops and phones will need to be put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • Traveling with a new cologne? As long as it contains no more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's placed in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it in your hand luggage.
  • Hiking footwear and other bulky shoes are most often X-rayed. Think about wearing lightweight sneakers instead.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever updating. Read over your airline's website for what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
