New scanners to bring changes to airport liquid ban

New airport scanners will remove the need for travellers to take liquids and electronics out of their bags at airport security in time for the summer, with Larnaka airport operating a similar system on a pilot basis.

London’s Gatwick Airport announced that security regulations which currently slow the security process will change later this year as it is installing new high-tech scanners.

Major UK airports, including Gatwick, have been given a deadline of June 2024 by the Government to install new CT X-ray scanners.

The technology takes a 3D picture of the carry-on luggage and is even capable of using AI to identify threats such as weapons.

As not all airports are introducing new security technology at the same rate, the Government has told passengers to check security requirements with their airline or destination airport before travelling, as 100ml liquid containers and 1 litre transparent bags may still be required when travelling from and through airports outside of the UK.

At Larnaka airport a similar technology is operating on a pilot basis with the use of a cabin baggage CT scanner (EDS CB), given that the liquids will be within the permitted limits (<100 ml) and placed in the pre-defined packaging.
