How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Nelson

If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport cafes and less time navigating your way through security on your way to Nelson, just follow these helpful tips:

  • Airport security will ask to see your boarding pass and travel ID upon arrival. Have them in an accessible place, ready for inspection.
  • Remove your jewellery, belt and shoes before approaching security. Items such as these are not permitted to pass through the body scanner.
  • Electronic devices such as tablets, laptops and phones are always sent through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure they're easily accessible.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids and gels, each passenger is permitted a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to store containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Safety boots and other cumbersome shoes tend to be X-rayed. We suggest wearing lightweight sneakers instead.
  • Put any pocketknives or other pointy metal items in your checked luggage. Security personnel don't permit these on the aircraft.
