Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is
testing a smart security checkpoint system from Smiths Detection.
The integrated system combines advanced X-ray
inspection screening and an automated tray return system,
providing heightened security alongside a smoother passenger
experience and improved operational efficiency.
Chengdu Airport spokesperson said, “Maximising the security and
experience of our passengers is top priority at Chengdu Shuangliu
International Airport. Equipped with Smiths Detection’s
state-of-the-art smart security checkpoint, we’re confident in
enhancing our security controls at checkpoints and boosting
Central to the trial is the HI-SCAN 6040p-2is
dual view X-ray inspection unit for carry-on luggage and the
iLane.evo automated tray handling system.
The HI-SCAN 6040p-2is
certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC),
generates high-quality x-ray scanned images of
personal belongings and cabin baggage, while the iLane.evo
automatically detects and re-routes suspicious items removing
bottlenecks of passenger flow.
Equipped with dual-view
capabilities, the HI-SCAN 6040p-2is reduces the need for manual
bag checks or re-checks, enabling faster security clearances
providing a seamless journey for passengers.
Dennis Zeng, General Manager, Smiths
Detection China, said, “Smiths Detection is pleased to be
driving our first integrated security checkpoint trial in China.
Combined, the HI-SCAN 6040p-2is and the iLane.evo streamline
screening processes and reduce operational costs We anticipate post-trial feedback and know that Smiths
Detection can leverage our global experience to help fortify
Chengdu Airport’s security solutions to a greater degree than
pre-trial. We are glad that our current collaboration with Chengdu
airport has instilled in them the confidence to work with us on
this first live trial, and we hope to continue sharing our
security expertise with airports across China.”
The live trial
involving real passengers will continue until March 2020.
