Hi all,
Can anyone confirm that it is no longer the case that secondary liquid screening is carried out at the gate when travelling from HKG/BKK to Australia?
Thanks in advance.

No secondary screening in Hong Kong, but still the case out of Bangkok

Can confirm no additional screening in HK on my last 3 trips from HKG-MEL on CX in the past 2 months.

As mentioned, no additional screening in HK but still at BKK - just flew on QF24 from BKK two days ago and bags were checked at the gate.

Good news about HK. I was told by officials it’s the Australian government that insists on a secondary screening in BKK and Manila. Does anyone know why? SIN do checks before you board the plane.

I think it’s because the Australian government doesn’t think the security screening at those airports is good enough. That’s what I read on one of the frequent flyer forums when trying to find out about the current situation at HKG and BKK. If that’s true then why is it only liquids they are checking when doing the secondary screening? Maybe they think you can buy dangerous liquids past the main security at those airports??

SIN has nothing to do with this...they do the main security scanning at each gate, not secondary

Last couple of trips via DXB back to Sydney there was secondary screening at the gate.

Must vary as I went BKK to SYD in March and was no screening at the gate

Nothing in HKG on the half dozen trips I have done this year
