SECURITY & SAFETY

SAFETY

The safety of our airport visitors, passengers and staff, is the top priority at Broome International Airport.

SECURITY SCREENING

Australian Government law requires everyone entering our departure lounge to be security screened to identify prohibited items or weapons, and to prevent them being taken into the departure lounge, airside or on-board aircrafts.

Compulsory passenger screening at Broome International Airport is performed to Australian Gov-ernment standards using X-ray machines, walk-through metal detectors, hand-held metal detectors, and if required, bag searches.

Explosive Trace Detection systems are used for random screening of passengers and carry on goods to check if there's been any contact with explosives, or chemicals used in explosive compounds.

Refusal to undergo any part of the screening process will mean you won't be allowed to enter our departure lounge, and you could be prevented from boarding your flight.

Broome International Airport has a network of closed circuit TV cameras (CCTV) and constant secu-rity patrols to enhance our security features.

UNATTENDED BAGGAGE

Luggage, boxes or similar items cannot be left unattended in any area of the airport. Any unattend-ed items will be treated as suspicious. Anyone finding unattended items should report them immedi-ately to Airport Security staff or contact our Security Supervisor on 0438 996435

Make sure your luggage has your name and destination clearly displayed. Airlines tags are available in the Departure terminal.

DANGEROUS GOODS

Dangerous goods are items or substances that could endanger the safety of passengers or the air-craft. Please check directly with your airline for information on their prohibited items.

INAPPROPRIATE JOKES, COMMENTS & SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOUR

Any comment made, even in jest, regarding the possession or knowledge of a weapon or explosive device is taken seriously and can result in prosecution and / or refusal by airlines to fly you.

ABUSIVE &/OR INTOXICATED PASSENGERS

A passenger who appears to be intoxicated, behaving erratically or is abusive to other passengers or staff can be refused boarding permission, or be removed from an aircraft.
