New security search area

Birmingham Airport is currently building for its future by building a new security search area that will be streamlined, speedier and simpler.

Whilst we are underdoing this construction phase, our upstairs queuing area has been taken out of action and customers queue downstairs. This is the new normal, as we construct our new security area.

This transition is at times confusing for our customers with queuing and walking routes changing, however our colleagues are around for any help and assistance. We apologise to our customers for the impact this transition may have from time to time.

Each airline has its own check in time, customers are reminded to turn up in line with when their check in opens, this detail can be found on their booking.

Customers travelling with Jet2 or TUI can drop their bags off the day before. On the day they travel, head straight to security.

Check in Zones in the terminal:
Zone A for Jet2  
Zone D for Emirates 
Zones B & C for all other airlines  

Please leave all compliant liquids and electricals in your hand luggage.  Customers should follow these instructions: 

  • Liquids, pastes and gels, up to 100ml should be left in hand luggage during the security search.
  • All electricals to remain in hand luggage during the security search.
  • When going through security please ensure all items are out of pockets including phones, keys, coins and tissues etc., remove all belts. Watches can be left on.
