Security worker reveals the simple measure that could speed up airport process

Air travel is renowned for being one laden with wait times, whether its anticipated waits at the check-in desk or baggage belt, or as the result of airline delays. However, there are ways passengers can take waiting times into their own hands.

Travellers are issued with trays to place their bags and personal possession within before moving they pass through the X-ray machine.

While passengers are quick to remove their items from the tray on the other side, it seems many then abandon the tray, leaving it on the belt.

This can cause somewhat of a traffic jam for travellers waiting for their bags to be scanned.

The worker continues: “Last time I flew, the queue was moving slowly, and I picked up and stacked about a dozen trays that the people in front of me had not bothered to move.

“You don’t have to get ready at the table you can get your stuff and put yourself back together in the terminal.

“A full belt is the cause if a lot of the slowdowns on the checkpoint.”

They add: “If possible wear shoes easy to take on and put on.”

Passengers found to be carrying items that are banned from flights are also likely to slow the process down.

According to the Gov.uk website, airport security is allowed to ban any items coming through security.

The website warns: “Airport security staff will not let anything through that they consider dangerous – even if it’s normally allowed in hand luggage.”
