Aalborg Airport in Northern Denmark has improved its security flow in a bit to cut waiting time and make the journey through the airport easier for passengers.
According to the airport, the new security flow is 80% more efficient than its predecessor. Its installation, which coincided with the airport’s 81st birthday, followed the introduction of two new e-gates at the entrance to security, which enable passengers to scan their boarding passes. Last year Aalborg also installed a system that enables passengers to keep their electronics in their carry-on luggage.
There are now four new security flows with a total of 10 stations, compared with before, when the airport had only three flows with a single station each. The new flow can accommodate approximately 975 passengers an hour, 435 more than before.
Aalborg Airport COO and deputy director Kim Bermann said, “We work continuously to create the best flow for passengers. Not only is the new flow 80% more effective, but we can now offer our passengers a modern and user-friendly safety control.”
The new security flow was developed in collaboration with Marcus Pedersen, Houlberg Instrumentation and Smith’s Detection.
