FCO welcomes new advanced carry-on baggage screening
Leonardo di Vinci International Airport has launched new, advanced computed tomography X-ray scanners in order for passengers to no longer have to remove liquids during the carry-on baggage screening stage.
Leonardo di Vinci International Airport (FCO), Rome, has installed computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanners in order for passengers to no longer have to remove liquids during the baggage screening airport stage. The installation of this world-leading technology reflects the airport’s high standards for passenger service excellence and process automation, having recently been awarded the ACI Best Airport in Europe for the fourth time in the last five years.
The scanners allow for electronics and liquids to remain in bags, speeding up passenger screening and reducing touchpoints.
The combination of the CT X-ray scanners, alongside 45 already implemented trace detectors, will further improve security and operational efficiency.
The scanner can be equipped with software, which uses advanced algorithms to reduce the burden on operators – and potential errors – by automating the detection process for prohibited items.
Marco Stramaccioni, CEO of ADR Security for Leonardo da Vinci Rome International Airport said: “Aeroporti di Roma looks forward to be a frontrunner for passenger experience and security at Leonardo di Vinci Rome International Airport. As passenger numbers increase, we will be well placed to efficiently screen passengers, reducing the burden on our operators. By harnessing the power of CT technology, we have futureproofed our security checkpoints.”
