When human remains are repatriated by air they must pass through transport security. Usually the coffin passes through security without a problem, but there are occasions when a problem arises because items have been placed in the coffin.
The regulations state that the coffin should include only the deceased, their clothing (No additional clothing) and necessary packing. The items listed below have been known to create security problems.
Bottles of Water
Laptop Computer (Caused airport evacuation)
If there are any medical implants or amputations these need to be mentioned. The below have previously caused problems during repatriation.
Amputated Limbs (The x-ray operator thought that they couldn’t see through part of the coffin)
