How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Dar es Salaam

Your journey to Dar es Salaam begins the minute you've finished the security checks. Here are a few handy tips to ensure you get through quickly:

  • Make sure your passport and boarding pass are easy to reach. You'll be required to show them straightaway.
  • You'll need to stop the music for a few minutes. Headphones and earphones must be taken off and put in a bin to be X-rayed. The same goes for items such as keys and coins.
  • Electronic devices such as laptops, cameras and phones need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure you can get to them quickly.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to place all liquids, gels and creams in a separate tray for scanning. Make sure they're all packed in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Undo your shoelaces before entering the body scanner. Depending on the sort of shoes you're wearing, security may tell you to take them off.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever changing. Check with your carrier's website to understand what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
