Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (KIAB/ BLR Airport) has witnessed an increase in the collection of prohibited goods, including hand tools, blades, lighters, coconuts, toy guns, ghee packets and spices over the last few months.
The security team at BLR Airport receives an average of over 500 Kgs of prohibited articles each week. These items are confiscated by the CISF at the security screening area. Passengers are unaware of the prohibited objects which potentially impacts the security frisking process, resulting in delays due to the manual examination of such baggage.
For the safety and security of our passengers, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) – operator of BLR Airport – urges passengers to avoid packing prohibited items like Lighters, Scissors, Toy weapons, Sharp metal objects, Sporting Goods, Guns and firearms, Tools, Self Defense equipment, Explosive materials, Flammable items, Chemicals, Aerosols and liquids and any other items which are deemed security hazards by local law.
