Before boarding your flight or entering the departure hall, you will be subject to a number of security checks. These checks are carried out to prevent any objects being taken on board that could endanger the passengers and crew. During these checks, security checks for any sharp objects, such as scissors, knives, awls and the like. However, these items are allowed in your hold luggage.
