This significant investment includes the installation of two state-of-the-art cabin baggage screening lanes equipped with the latest C3 screening technology along with advanced security scanners.

Provided by Rapiscan Systems, the C3 screening technology, the highest-rated aviation security equipment currently available, means that passengers can now leave large electronic items, such as laptops, tablets, and phones, in their cabin baggage. They can also carry liquids in excess of 100ml, up to two litres, through security without removing them from their bags. This advancement significantly streamlines the security process, reducing the need for multiple trays and repacking, resulting in a more efficient passenger journey through the airport, according to its operator. For passenger screening, the introduction of modern security scanners, replacing traditional metal detectors, ensures the highest levels of security in a non-intrusive manner.

Simon Geere, Farnborough Airport CEO, said: “The completion of our £3m security screening upgrade marks a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to delivering an unparalleled passenger experience and one that meets the evolving needs of our customers.

“Installing state-of-the-art security technology is a testament to the airport’s continuous efforts to take a leading role in driving both service and security standards. Our passengers can now enjoy a faster, smoother, and more convenient journey through our airport, knowing they are benefitting from the highest levels of security and assurance.”
