Wearing face masks at the airport.
To continue keeping WA safe it is mandatory to wear a mask at BMRA. This includes in the car park, forecourts, terminal and arrivals hall.
- You need to bring your own mask to the airport.
- On departure please put on your mask when you exit your vehicle and throughout your journey, unless required for security screening or an applicable exemption.
- On arrival into BMRA, please keep your mask on after you disembark the aircraft until you have returned to your vehicle.
- You can still enjoy a coffee, drink or bite to eat provided you are seated and put your mask back on as soon as you’ve finished.
- Children under the age of 12 are exempt.
Busselton Margaret River Airport is a security controlled airport. Australian Government law requires everyone entering into a secure area, like our departure lounge to be security screened first. This is to identify prohibited items or weapons, and to prevent them being taken into the departure lounge, airside or on-board an aircraft.
Compulsory passenger screening at BMRA is performed to Australian Government standards using X-ray machines, body scanners, walk-through metal detectors, hand-held metal detectors, and if required, bag searches.
Explosive Trace Detection systems are used for random screening of passengers and carry on goods to check if there’s been any contact with explosives, or chemicals used in explosive compounds.
Refusal to undergo any part of the screening process will mean you won’t be allowed to enter our departure lounge, and you could be prevented from boarding your flight.
Luggage, boxes or similar items cannot be left unattended in any area of the airport. Any unattended items will be treated as suspicious. Anyone finding unattended items should report them immediately to Airport Security staff.
Make sure your luggage has your name and destination clearly displayed. Airlines tags are available in the Departure terminal.
Dangerous goods are items or substances that could endanger the safety of passengers or the aircraft. Please check directly with your airline for information on their prohibited items.
INAPPROPRIATE JOKES, COMMENTS & SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOUR
Any comment made, even in jest, regarding the possession or knowledge of a weapon or explosive device is taken seriously and can result in prosecution and / or refusal by airlines to fly you.
ABUSIVE &/OR INTOXICATED PASSENGERS
A passenger who appears to be intoxicated, behaving erratically or is abusive to other passengers or staff can be refused boarding permission, or be removed from an aircraft.
