Smart security arrives at Fiumicino Airport

A hi-tech revolution is taking place at Fiumicino Airport, where security checks before boarding, at Terminal One, are even quicker and easier. Indeed, thanks to a technology that performs a real ‘CT scan’, passengers are now able to carry liquids even larger than 100ml in their hand luggage, as well as computers, tablets and mobile phones without having to separate them from their suitcases.

The new technology, introduced last year for frequent travellers, has now been extended to all passengers departing from Terminal 1, which hosts about 70% of departures from Fiumicino.

The installation of C3 standard Explosive Detection System hand baggage screening equipment has been completed after a period of testing.

This is the highest security standard for hand luggage screening, which will increase the level of security and further enhance the passenger experience.
