UK Airports will soon be using new technology that means flyers won’t have to remove liquids or laptops out of their bags.
New scanners, which are similar to those used in hospitals, will show detailed images of baggage content and will allow staff to rotate and dissect what’s inside, according to Sky News.
Let’s admit it, having to bag up all of your liquids is one of the most annoying parts about flying. There’s nothing worse than getting to security and panicking that you’ve accidentally left a bottle of nail vanish somewhere deep in the depths of your bag.
The government has advised UK airports invest in the new technology by December 2022, which will mean passengers will no longer have to display 100ml liquids in plastic bags.
According to Sky News, the new scanners will mean security checks could be ’50 to 60 times faster’.
Heathrow airport’s John Holland-Kaye said: “We can detect what liquid is inside a bottle, we can look inside a laptop and see whether it has any dangerous devices inside it, and that allows us to have a much higher level of security on the plane.”
