Security

For your comfort and convenience Budapest Airport complies with all local and international regulations concerning aviation security and safety. You are reminded that prohibited items may be confiscated. Passengers are therefore encouraged not to travel to the airport with any items that fall in to this category.





Passenger security screening

Every passenger and member of staff must pass through the passenger security screening checkpoints in all terminals. Therefore, your cooperation and patience is appreciated whilst our well-trained security staff carry out their necessary duties.

Whilst waiting for screening, please help us ensure you pass through the security process as smoothly as possible. Passengers are requested to empty all pockets, take off any upper body over garments (jacket, blazer, coat, waistcoat, etc.) and place their belongings and garments in the plastic trays. Belts and shoes may also have to be taken off upon request (in the latter case, foot sacks are available if required). All laptop computers must be removed from your hand baggage and placed into a separate tray. The state-of-the-art X-ray machines used for screening passengers have no impact on health, pacemakers or celluloid photos.

Any liquids, aerosols and gels (under the allowable 100ml limit) must also be removed from your hand baggage and screened in a transparent plastic bag. If the passenger does not have a clear plastic pouch, it can be bought at the news stands (hub, Relay) before the security screening points.

Can drones be carried in hand baggage?

Based on the recommendations of the Hungarian authorities, Budapest Airport currently applies the following practice with regard to the transportation of drones, i.e. unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), in hand baggage:
The rotor blades of drones can be classified under “objects with a sharp point or sharp edge”, pursuant to section c) of attachment 4-C of Commission implementing regulation (EU) 2015/1998 laying down detailed measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security. Therefore, if the length of the rotor blades exceeds 6 cm, they cannot be carried in hand baggage.
Also, in view of the maximum speed and mass of drones during operation (which significantly increase the risk of causing serious injury in case of potential impact), the operation of UAVs in public (arrivals and departure halls) and in non-public (transit area, taxiways, aprons) areas would pose a significant risk to the physical integrity of passengers and their escorts, as well as to aircraft. Therefore, we wish to prevent the operation of UAVs in these areas. This is another reason why they may not be carried in hand baggage.
We would like to emphasize that passengers have the possibility of transporting drones in their hold baggage.
The security of our passengers is our top priority. We are committed to do our utmost to maintain this.
