Transport Safety

Transport security is the protection of transportation infrastructure and vehicles from acts of unlawful interference, where an act of interference is considered an illegal act or inaction, including a terrorist act, that threatens the safe operation of the transportation complex, resulting in harm to human life and safety, material damage or creates a threat of such consequences.

Ensuring transport security is one of the highest priority for the airport.

Departing passengers must undergo a pre-flight inspection just prior to boarding the aircraft.

There are separate regulations for the transport of weapons, ammunition and special means.

Please note, there may be possible restrictions in other countries.

Please note: If a person violates the requirements of transportation security, criminal or administrative liabilities may arise in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation:
