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

Make your trip to Kota Kinabalu a little easier by following these handy security tips:

  • Make sure you know the whereabouts of your travel ID and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the queue when you're asked to produce them.
  • You'll need to place your music on pause for a little while. Headphones and earphones must be taken off and placed in a bin for X-raying. The same applies to items such as belts and heavy jackets.
  • Digital cameras, laptops and other electronic devices must be placed in a bin to be X-rayed.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to place all liquids, gels and creams in a separate bin for inspection. Make sure they're all in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Give some thought to your choice of footwear. Slippers are awesome because they're a cinch to slip out of when you're doing the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • Pocketknives and corkscrews are not allowed on board the plane. Pack them in your checked luggage to avoid losing them at the airport security checkpoint.
