Jeju International Airport will become the world's first airport to install the Hi-Scan 6040 CTiX, a computed tomography-based cabin baggage screening system that was launched last November.
The Hi-Scan 6040 CTiX is expected to significantly decrease the time that travellers spend in security screening as it eradicates the need for passengers to remove electronic devices and liquids from their hand luggage. The screening equipment will be installed by the end of the year.
'With the growing number of travellers passing through Jeju International Airport and the need to adhere to stricter security standards, KAC was looking for a cutting-edge checkpoint solution with advanced design, effectiveness and high throughput.
As a long-standing distributor and partner of Smiths Detection in Korea, we were able confidently to vouch for their innovative solutions,' said Donggok Precision chairman Lee Kwang Sun.
iLane.evo is an effective tray handling system, designed to remove bottlenecks to deliver a steady flow of trays; and IonScan 600 is a portable explosives trace detector that can accurately detect and identify a wide range of explosives in under eight seconds. Together, the three systems will further streamline the screening process to reduce wait times at security checkpoints.
