These new devices use new technology that allows operators to generate 3D images of the contents of the luggage - allowing a more detailed analysis of the objects. It is hoped that this will speed up the security check process, which is usually the most time-consuming step in the process of boarding a plane.

It is believed that the implementation of this new equipment will be completed between the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024. This equipment is already available in some airports in London, and also in the USA.

However, the arrival at more airports is certainly good news for those who like to travel.
