Smiths Detection Upgrades Security and
Passenger Throughput at NAIA
Smiths Detection has upgraded the passenger
throughput and experience at Ninoy Aquino International Airport
(NAIA) in Manila.
Philippines Office for Transportation Security
(OTS) partnered with the Manila International Airport Authority
(MIAA) for the acquisition of 12 HI-SCAN 6040 2is HR units, an
advanced and dual-view X-ray detection system, capable of
identifying explosives in carry-on baggage.
OTS also facilitated the installation of 12 iLane.evo units, an automatic tray return system (ATRS), to
streamline the passenger screening process and help
improve the overall passenger experience at the airport.
An OTS official commented on the joint effort
between OTS and MIAA saying, As we work towards the revival of
air travel, Smiths Detections HI-SCAN 6040 2is HR scanners
advanced dual-view X-ray capabilities with ATRS will help to
increase ease of our baggage inspection process. By providing
high-quality image scans, our operators can determine baggage
content more easily. This will minimize the time passengers spend
in queues while facilitating tighter security requirements.
