Stansted Airport Security And Baggage
What can I take through security?
FastTrack is a dedicated channel to enable you to fly through security and reach the departure lounge more quickly and is now available to pre-book.
For the benefit of all passengers’ security, departing passengers may be required to be screened using body-scanning security equipment at Stansted Airport.
Our advanced technology scanners are part of a range of security measures, some of which may not be obvious. These include a deliberate element of unpredictability in their deployment. This means you may experience a different process than you did on your last visit to Stansted.
Scanners are the safe*, quick, and simple to use solution for speeding passengers through security whilst achieving higher levels of security detection than has previously been possible.
Assessment of scan data is conducted using the latest computer algorithms and no personal data is saved.
You may opt out of being screened by security scanner. In this instance, you must either be screened by an alternative method which includes at least an enhanced hand search in private or you will not be permitted to enter the security restricted area, or, if applicable, you will be removed from it. An enhanced hand search in private will take place in a private room or an area away from the main search comb. This may involve the loosening and/or removal of clothing.
