Queues can form at airport security screening at any time and for many reasons, but we can anticipate peak times based on expected passenger numbers. The charts below show the expected peak times to support you and your travel plans.
If your boarding time is within or soon after a peak security screening time, we recommend arriving at the airport earlier than usual to allow extra time, in case of queues.
Check this page the day before you travel for the most up-to-date peak times.
Peak times are estimated based on the expected number of passengers and Aviation Security Service processing capacity.
Green = normal capacity, minimal queues expected
Orange = moderate capacity, queues may develop but are not expected to cause significantly longer processing times for passengers
Red = high capacity, queues and longer processing times for passengers can be expected
Grey = the screening point isn't open
The more prepared you are, the easier your screening experience will be. Learn more about how to be prepared at security screening.
