Thanks to state-of-the-art hand baggage scanners, passengers will not need to retrieve containers of liquids or computer equipment at the Munich Airport.
As well as checking all items of carry-on baggage for solid and liquid explosives, the CT scanners provide the screening staff with a three-dimensional view of each carry-on baggage item on a screen. These new CT scanners mean that electronic devices and liquids will no longer have to be removed from passengers’ baggage. All personal items will be placed in large trays at the four preparation points of each lane and returned on a long output conveyor with lots of individual space. Passengers can take as much time as they need, and can even overtake slower passengers. As the modern screening lanes are so efficient, the passenger flow per screening lane can be increased significantly compared with the conventional screening lanes.
Preparations for modernization have already begun at Munich Airport. Work on the arrangement of new control points will start first in Terminal 2 in January 2023, and in Terminal 1 in the first quarter of 2023. Munich Airport will be the first German airport to almost completely switch to modern passenger safety technologies.
