How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Dakar

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport bars and restaurants and less time navigating your way through security on your way to Dakar, just follow these suggestions:

  • Make sure your passport and boarding pass are easy to reach. You will be asked to show them straightaway.
  • Remove your shoes and belt before arriving at the security checkpoint. Items like these are not permitted in the body scanner.
  • Ensure your electronic devices and laptop are easy to reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine separately.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to put all creams, liquids and gels in a separate tub for inspection. Make sure they're all stored 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 piece of cake to remove when you're at the security checkpoint. Try wearing some on your next flight!
  • The list of prohibited items is forever updating. Check with your airline's website to find out what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
