Passengers are inspected via six walk-through metal detectors and two body scanners. The number of passengers that can be screened per hour is 3,600.

The new screening area is on the mezzanine floor above the passport control unit for international departures. Because of the presence of the new area, an alteration has been made to the security checking procedure for outgoing passengers. Previously, passengers usually had to walk through the immigration counter before having their luggage scanned for suspicious items. Air travelers are now requested to have their luggage scanned first. This system will allow them to leave the prohibited items with relatives before proceeding to the immigration counters.
