Charlotte Douglas International Airport’s (CLT) new security checkpoints feature automated screening lanes supplied by Vanderlande as part of a major terminal expansion project.
To increase operational capacity and provide its customers with a positive experience, the airport undertook a US$600m terminal expansion project in December 2019. The project included the consolidation of the airport’s five security checkpoints into three high-efficiency checkpoints, all equipped with automated screening lanes (ASLs) to increase throughput and enhance security. Vanderlande was selected through an RFP process for the design and installation of the first five ASLs, which were deployed in December 2020.
Powered by the company’s premium remote screening software, the ASLs will enable CLT to centralize its screening operations to further improve operational efficiency. The modular design of the lanes also eases the transition from AT x-rays to CT technology.
Vanderlande’s Andrew Manship, EVP, airports, noted, “We are proud to support CLT in its terminal expansion project. We are looking forward to building on this new collaborative relationship which will help the airport reach its objectives, as well as provide a seamless screening experience to its passengers.”
