Security checks - AEROPORTI DI ROMA
After check-in and before going to the boarding area, you go through security staffed by ADR Security personnel, equipped with metal detectors and other safety equipment.
At Terminal 1 – and almost all security checkpoints in ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ airport's Terminal 3 – passing through security checks is even quicker and more comfortable, thanks to the installation of the latest hand luggage screening equipment, Explosive Detection System standard C3.
This new technology ensures a very high level of security for screening hand luggage and allows the passenger to leave LAGS (liquids, aaerosol and gels) in any quantity and electrical/electronic devices inside their baggage during the screening process.
The times for conducting security checks may vary even throughout the course of the same day.
We therefore recommend always arriving at the airport with plenty of time to spare.
Place any valuable items and cash in the tray in such a way so that they are not immediately visible to those ahead of you or behind you in the queue (for example, in the pocket of a jacket, etc.).
As much as possible, try to maintain visual contact with the tray.
Remember that ADR Security personnel do not take delivery of the items that you placed in the tray and they cannot identify which passenger used any given tray.
How to go through security with your children

- Remember to remove children’s food items from your bag, including feeding bottles, milk, fruit juices, water and other drinks, baby food and soups you have prepared. Place the individual containers into the tray so that security staff can carry out the necessary checks faster and more easily
