As the UK government has enforced the implementation of CT technology in all major UK airports, a big unknown to security operators appears.
The main change in the process is that passengers will be able to leave their electronic equipment and liquids inside the bags, which will impact each sub-station of the security checkpoint. What changes can be expected with regard to screening and passenger process times under the new technology? What will the impact be on overall passenger and tray throughputs?
