All passengers are subject to ID and security control, prior to boarding the aircraft. Control may be effected by either the airport personnel or the Ground Handler’s personnel. In special cases, such as helicopters departing from private heliports, ID and security control may be effected by the flight crew.
The Captain reserve the right to scan the passengers and/or their luggage either by hand or by any available electronic means.
If a passenger refuses the above security control, he/she shall not embark the aircraft. The pilot may refuse to take aboard a passenger or luggage if he reasonably thinks that the safety of the Flight is at risk. In case the Flight or any part thereof is cancelled due to any of the reasons prescribed in the provisions of the present article, the Air Carrier may withhold the Fare or, if the Fare has not been paid, demand its payment. All luggage shall be placed in the luggage compartment unless the pilot permits otherwise.
