…… those pesky plastic bags & small bottles for liquids & gels might be a thing of the past…..
“Industry-watchers say the advent of the new scanners signals the end of individual governments’ requirement that passengers may carry on board only small quantities of liquids, gels and aerosols in their hand-luggage and having to take out ones laptop out of your own bag, at security checks.
London City Airport is the first UK airport investing in the new scanners in a partnership with multi-national security IT and engineering firm, Leidos. London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports are currently trialing them. London City’s COO, Alison FitzGerald, said following its one-lane trial this year, it is satisfied that the scanners are high performing. “Our passengers love them… Thanks to the Leidos solution, alongside speed, it also delivers the highest security specifications.”
Earlier this year, the US’s Transportation Security Administration announced that millions of dollars were being invested into hi-tech airport scanners in the US, with the idea of better detecting dangerous objects and removing the need for passengers to take liquids and laptops out of hand luggage in the security queue.”
