Airport Security checks

The days of the inconvenient controls at the Canary Islands' airports are numbered.

On the 24th, Aena will install 3D scanners in Madrid and Barcelona to analyse suitcases without having to remove the contents, then the islands will come


The usual inconveniences suffered by passengers when passing through airport controls with the obligation to take out liquids and place everything they have on them electronics, such as batteries or laptops, in the trays, seem to have their days numbered.



Spanish Airports and Air Navigation (Aena) reported on the significant investment in EDSCB (Explosive Detection System for Cabin Baggage) technology, despite the fact that in Spain it is not mandatory in order to make controls more efficient and avoid the usual inconvenience for passengers.



These systems, according to Aena sources, are equipment with X-ray technology that generates a 3D image, which facilitates the inspection of luggage: it will no longer be necessary to take electronic devices or liquids out of trays to pass the control (although the regulations on liquids will be maintained because that depends on the EU and it will continue to be prohibited to pass containers of more than 100ml).



In a decade (2018-2028), Aena will have invested €1,170 million in physical security, with the renewal of baggage inspection equipment in the hold and security filters. Security levels/standards are the same at all airports in the network, whether large or small.



In addition, automated lines for the management of hand baggage (ATRS) and the remote inspection system (Remote) will be implemented, which also streamlines the flow through the security filters of the busiest airports.



ATRS allows suspicious and non-suspicious bags to be separated, and tray management and return automatically, without the passenger having to worry about them.



The remote inspection system allows baggage inspection to be carried out from a remote room, without the need for the guard to be physically at the security checkpoint (higher concentration). This is a global project to modernise security filters, which also includes the deployment of biometric systems for access to controls. As for the renovation of the baggage inspection equipment in the hold and the security filters, they will involve the acquisition of 261 pieces of equipment, as well as the necessary works for their integration.



As reported by El País and confirmed by Aena, the filters with the new technology will first be installed at Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona-El Prat airports, which account for 40% of passenger traffic, and by the end of 2024 they will be implemented at Palma de Mallorca, after which they will be placed at the rest of the airports in the network.



Aena will tender several tenders this year for the acquisition of new X-ray technology equipment that generates a 3D image, which will be operational at the end of 2023 or early 2024, that same year it could be implemented at Fuerteventura airport.



The measure is part of a plan to modernise security controls at Spanish airports, with which Aena aims to speed up the flow of passengers and which also includes the deployment of biometric access systems.



It will also implement automated lines for the management of hand baggage (ATRS) and a remote inspection system (Remote), which allows guards to carry out their work from a room, without the need to be physically at the security filter.



ATRS allows suspicious and non-suspicious bags to be separated, and tray management and return automatically, without the passenger having to worry about them.



According to its data, in a decade (2018-2028) Aena will have invested 1,170 million euros in physical security, with the renewal of baggage inspection equipment in the hold and security filters.
