Cardiff Airport Security Arrangements/Check-in

15,000 banned items are being confiscated every day from passengers, at Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick airports alone. The whole system has slowed down because people are still carrying sharp objects in their hand luggage. In the UK an extra £30m of additional investment has been ploughed into airport security and improving surveillance at the major airports. Tighter security measures at UK Airports means that checking in for your flight at Cardiff airport can take longer.

If your hold baggage is heavier than the allowance, the airline is entitled to charge an excess baggage charge.

If doing so takes your hold luggage above your hold baggage allowance, you might have to pay excess baggage charges.
