Airlines present security vision

10 October 2011

The airline industry has presented its vision for the future of check-in security, including hi-tech colour-coded scanning corridors.

Passengers will be able to keep their shoes on and their bags in their hand – toothpaste, nail clippers, laptops and all – as they pass through the “‘checkpoint of the future'”.

Under a mock-up checkpoint on display at the ‘Aviation Security World Conference’ in Amsterdam, passengers are guided into one of three corridors upon presenting their passports: blue for frequent travellers, purple for normal passengers and orange for those deemed to require enhanced vetting.

People do not have to empty their pockets, remove any of their clothing or subject themselves to pat-downs before walking through a 20-foot tunnel that scans metals, liquids, laptops and other potential dangers one by one.
