The system will result in fewer randomised checks and an improved passenger experience
Qatar’s Hamad International Airport has installed advanced scanners in its transfers hall, meaning that travellers no longer need to remove liquids or electronics from their baggage. The new technology can also scan people’s shoes in just a few seconds, without the need to remove them.
For added security, bags are electronically ‘tagged’ to boarding passes for tracking purposes and trays will be scanned for any items left behind.
The system, which will result in fewer randomised checks, is being fast-tracked at Hamad International Airport, and will be rolled out across all of its departure and transfer passenger screening lanes later this year.
