Tokyo International Airport at Haneda has taken delivery of 12 sets of Hi-Scan 6040 CTiX carry-on baggage screening systems, iLane smart automatic tray return systems and UV-C tray disinfection systems from Smiths Detection.
The new equipment, which supports Japan Airlines’ Smart Security program, will be introduced at security checkpoints in the airport’s Domestic Terminal from this month, with completion scheduled for August 2022.
Smiths Detection’s Hi-Scan 6040 CTiX is a computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanner producing high-resolution volumetric 3D images for quicker baggage assessment and low false-alarm rates.
The scanners allow electronics and liquids to remain in bags, speeding up passenger screening and reducing touchpoints.
The fully automated tray return system, the iLane, is also designed to streamline the screening process and eliminate passenger bottlenecks while the UV-C, an ultraviolet light tray disinfection kit, is seamlessly integrated into the iLane tray return system, and eliminates up to 99.9% of microorganisms, including coronaviruses.
Atsushi Maeda, Airport Division Executive Officer Japan Airlines Co, said, “At Tokyo International Airport, we have redesigned the system from check-in to the boarding gate and have strengthened human services, embracing the digitalization of our system ... Smiths Detection’s security inspection system further strengthens security inspections and shortens the inspection time, realizing safer, more secure and stress-free airport services.”
In November 2021, Smiths Detection’s Hi-Scan 6040 CTiX was certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) under the Accessible Property Screening System (APSS) program to detection standard 6.2, Level 1, permitting the scanner to operate at an enhanced level with lower false alarm rates.© Travel News Asia
