In aviation, security is of the highest priority. The concept of airport security has been revised multiple times by the European Commission and national authorities.
Guidelines According to Commission Regulation (EU) No 2015/1998
This executive order of the European Commission regulates, among other things, security controls for passengers and their luggage.
Passengers must undergo security controls before they are allowed beyond security (GATE, Duty Free). During the security control, passenger’s hand luggage will be inspected for restricted articles.
Please inform security personnel if you are a user of a cardiac or neural pacemaker. If this is the case, you are NOT to use the metal detector equipment. Instead, an inspection by hand via patting and of the shoes will be performed. Passengers with implants, such as artificial hips or knees, will be required to undergo a security check by hand and a shoe inspection after passing through the metal detector (always triggers an alarm).
Beginning 1 September 2015, additional security regulations with regard to explosives controls will come in to effect in European, and therefore Austrian, commercial airports. Passengers, their hand luggage and electronic devices must be tested by hand with special paper strips for traces of explosives.
