Security Guidelines

The Security Check 

  • All passengers departing from Ramon Airport must undergo a security check by security personnel.
  • As part of the security check passengers will be asked questions pertaining to flight security.
  • Ramon Airport operates an automatic passenger baggage screening system – HBS. The system was developed in order to improve the level of passenger service.
    Passengers must leave their suitcase open or alternatively locked with a TSA lock. If the technological system issues an alert regarding a suspicious item, it sends the suitcase for manual inspection.
    A brochure is placed in every suitcase that is manually inspected, informing the passenger that their baggage was opened by a security inspector.
  • After completing check in at the airline counter passengers must undergo a body and carry-on luggage check. There are innovative technological means for quick and efficient passenger inspection. Passengers must place all the items they have on them and in their pockets in a designated box.
