Screening Video Transcipt
Welcome to aviation security passenger screening conducted at Australian Airports.
The Australian Government takes aviation security matters very seriously. Your cooperation is required to ensure there is no unlawful interference to aviation in this country.
Aviation security is a cooperative approach between a range of Australian government agencies and industry, working to protect the travelling public.
Your assistance at each point during the screening process is important.
If you choose not to be screened you will not be able to enter the sterile area or board your flight.
Airport screening officers are happy to address any concerns you may have during the screening process. You have the right to ask questions as you move through the screening point. If you do not wish to proceed through the screening process you will not be able to board the aircraft.
Your understanding and cooperation will assist in making the screening process efficient and effective for you and those around you.
Please remember that certain items are not permitted on board and aircraft and will not be allowed past the screening point, regardless of whether they are being carried by passengers or by any other person being screened.
Divest all loose, outer clothing or items on your person before proceeding to the screening point. Small or valuable items are better off being placed in your hand luggage before you get to the screening point. Remove lap top computers from carry cases and place in separate tray on the conveyor.
If you have a pacemaker, medically necessary syringes in your luggage or a medical condition such as an implanted replacement please discuss this with the screening point personnel.
Once you have divested all loose items and clothing, place all items on the x-ray conveyor move towards the screening mechanisms. You will be directed towards the security screening point.
Proceed through the walk-through metal detector at your usual pace.
If the metal detector alarm sounds, you will be asked by the screener whether you have any metal objects on your person.
You may ask that screening take place in a private room. Please talk to the screening personnel to make these arrangements.
You may go through further screening or be frisked by the screening officers.
You may be asked to remove your shoes, any belts, or other metal objects that may cause an alarm to sound.
Your belongings may be selected for further examination if a screener has seen something they are unsure about on the x-ray. Some of your bags may be physically opened and searched.
In other cases, explosive trace detection or ETD screening equipment will be passed over the interior and exterior of your carry-on possessions and outer layers of your clothing. This is undertaken on a random and continuous basis as passengers move through the screening point to make sure that no explosives are being carried through the airport or onto any aircraft.
A positive test will involve further screening which may include examination of your checked baggage.
Remember to collect all your belongings. Have a safe and enjoyable trip
Thank you for your cooperation.
Enjoy your flight.
