It’s About To Get A Lot Quicker To Get Through Adelaide Airport
Passengers will no longer need to remove electronic equipment from their bags when they pass through security at Adelaide Airport as part of a new trial that will include 3D cameras, cutting edge body scanners and an automated tray return system.
Adelaide Airport’s Brenton Cox has told The Advertiser:
“We anticipate equipment similar to what we are trialling today will be rolled out across multiple screening lanes from the end of the year.
“The new scanner of cabin baggage utilises computed tomography (CT) to generate a 3D image, providing a significantly enhanced view of items being screened compared with the current x-ray equipment.
“The automated tray return system is expected to speed up passenger screening and reduces the need for manual handling of trays by our security team.
“The scanner under trial features an open plan design, meaning passengers simply stand in front of the scanner with their arms held slightly away from the body.
“If the scanner reports an alarm, the location of the object is marked on a generic graphic of the human body -- with no identifying features -- preserving the privacy of passengers.”
