· How much time should I provide to get through security?

That depends on the number of passengers departing at the same time. At a quiet moment in winter you may not have to queue at all, on the busiest moments of peak days you may have to queue for half an hour or more. That is why - especially on very busy days - it is important to arrive at the airport well ahead of your scheduled departure time. Passengers are responsible to be at the gate in time for boarding even if there are long waiting times at security screening.
