Good news flyers! Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad airports will soon start testing a new scanning technology that will save passengers from the trouble of taking out laptops, electronic gadgets and liquid items for screening before boarding an aircraft.
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has given permission to start 3D-based computed tomography (CT) scanner at Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad airports on a pilot basis.
Based on a new technology, this scanner has already been tested at major global hubs like London, New York and Amsterdam.
Presently, passengers are required to take out their laptops and other gadgets from their cabin baggage and place them separately in the x-ray scanning machines.
If this project is implemented permanently, it will save time and ease up the security procedure for both passengers and security forces.
