New security tech at Leeds Bradford Airport means ‘smoother, faster’ journey for travellers

Leeds Bradford Airport

New hi-tech security scanners at Leeds Bradford Airport mean passengers can now leave liquids and electronic items in their bags whilst passing through security.

The airport said in a statement the change would “enable a smoother and more efficient security process for all passengers, significantly reducing hassle and reducing queues for departing travellers”.

Liquids still need to be in containers not exceeding 100ml, but an unlimited number of these containers can be taken.

The airport said it was one of the first in the UK to deploy the next generation security technology, which detects prohibited items with greater accuracy.

It added that passengers “will experience a smoother, faster, and more convenient journey through security.”

Airport chief executive Vincent Hodder said: “The introduction of the C3 scanners will enable our security staff to operate with greater accuracy, prioritising passenger safety while minimising unnecessary delays.

“We are thrilled with the installation of this next generation technology and are already seeing the positive impact on both security and customer experience, but we remind passengers to check before travelling when flying into Leeds Bradford from other airports, as these may not have the same security technology and may have different security requirements.”
