New security technology in the bag for Auckland Airport

Passengers travelling internationally from Auckland Airport will now be able to keep laptops and liquids in their carry-on bags for security screening thanks to the rollout of new technology.

Transport Minister, Simeon Brown said the new Computed Tomography (CT) scanning machines now in use at Auckland Airport’s international screening point would also be deployed to more passenger screening points across the country.

“CT scanning machines will be rolled out at domestic airports across the country between now and December, reducing pressure on aviation security lines and enabling travellers get to their gates faster,” said the Minister.

“Creating a more efficient and seamless travel experience is important for holidaymakers and businesses, enabling faster movement through our airports and reducing risk of flight delays.

“This is a great example of innovative technology being used to reduce barriers and deliver better outcomes for New Zealanders. Maintaining strong security measures at our airports is critical, and this technology ensures this.”
