The safety of those at Shellharbour Airport is of the utmost importance to us, which is why security is always a top priority.

We operate as per the stringent security standards set by the Federal Government. 

Unattended Baggage

Baggage must not be left unattended in public areas of the airport. Unattended baggage will be treated as suspicious. It is recommended that your baggage should be clearly tagged with your contact details.

Security-related threats

Please be warned that any threats or comments made by airport visitors about carrying weapons or explosives will be taken seriously, regardless of intent. Penalties include refusal of carriage onto your flight and prosecution.


If you have a medical condition and require certain medical equipment, it is recommended that you contact your airline to find out what can be carried through security screenings and on board your flight.
