Newcastle Airport installs CT scanners.

Newcastle Airport has installed computed tomography (CT) baggage X-ray and body scanning of passengers transiting the airport with the assistance of SNP Security.

According to SNP senior managing director Tom Roche, SNP was delighted to partner with Newcastle Airport to successfully implement Computed Tomography (CT) baggage X-ray and body scanning in Australia.

“SNP congratulates Newcastle Airport on this accomplishment, and we are proud of our dedicated team of security professionals who worked closely to make it happen,” he said.

“We’re very proud to offer all passengers through our airport a greatly enhanced customer experience,” Newcastle Airport CEO, Dr. Peter Cock said.

“Our passengers will no longer be required to undergo random explosives detection testing, or need to remove laptops from their hand luggage, making for a much smoother and convenient journey.”

Along with CT scanning, Newcastle Airport also rolled out a new Flight Information Display System (FIDS) throughout the terminal, making it easier for passengers and Airport visitors to access flight information and improve their travel experience.
