Safety is a priority across Dublin Airport, and you’ll be subject to checkpoints and screenings while travelling through Terminal 2. Security officials have passenger safety in mind at every phase in the boarding process, and they’re particularly concerned with keeping dangerous items out of the passenger cabin of each airplane leaving the terminal.
All luggage is screened, but bags that are bound for the passenger cabin get an extra level of scrutiny for obvious reasons. Streamlining the screening process reduces your chances of hitting a last-minute snag. That’s why passengers are advised to carry just one piece of hand luggage.
