Rules of vigilance / Help us be vigilant
A simple unattended bag can have a very disruptive impact on the activity of the airport.
Here below are some simple actions that can be observed to avoid this.
Rule n°1: Keep an eye on your bags
Remember to keep an eye on your belongings at all times.
Otherwise they might be identified as suspect items and be destroyed.
Always label clearly all your luggage (cabin or hold). Name and address labels should be put inside and outside the bags for more security.
Rule n°2: Report any unattended bag
If you see an unattended bag, do not touch it, report it immediately to the airport's staff.
Rule n°3: Report any unattended bag
Whatever the reason, do not accept to carry any bag or parcel from anyone. Report any suspect behavior to the airport's staff.
