Protection and security
Airport passes for access to restricted areas are used to welcome personalities or to accompany diplomatic or consular bags. They can be issued by the public company Aéroports de Paris to certain collaborators designated by Missions.
Airport passes give access to one or several of the four secure areas that are part of airport restricted areas:
Sector A (aircraft): parking area
Sector B (baggage): sorting, command and storage areas for outbound and connecting baggage
Sector P (passengers): area for passenger waiting and movement between the security screening points and the aircraft gate
Sector F (freight): outbound freight packaging and storage area
Airport passes must be worn in a clearly visible manner in restricted areas.
Local airport passes are valid for the duration of the functions of the person concerned.

The aim of security inspections is to detect the presence of firearms, explosive devices or any other objects liable to jeopardize flight security and safety.
Passengers benefiting from diplomatic status must therefore submit to luggage inspection / security checks (*) before boarding.
Should it prove necessary to search hand luggage manually once it has been checked by means of an automatic control device, the search will have to be carried out by a senior police officer or by a police officer under his command. Passengers who refuse to have their hand luggage searched will not be allowed to board the aircraft.
The captain of an aircraft is in any case free to disembark anyone or part of the load liable to jeopardize the security of the aircraft and of its passengers.
