New security screening equipment could be step forward

Commenting on the Government’s announcement that new security equipment will have to be implemented at UK airports, a spokesperson for the Airport Operators Association said:

“Airports continuously invest in improving their passengers’ experience. The new equipment could be a big step forward in ensuring a smooth security screening process and that’s positive.

“It is important to recognise the increasing cost of mandatory security measures like these. Each airport will have to fund the new equipment in a relatively short period of time, which will have a big impact particularly on smaller airports.”
