Farnborough completes £3 million security upgrade
This investment includes the installation of two cabin baggage screening lanes equipped with the latest C3 screening technology along with advanced security scanners for passenger screening.
Passengers and cabin baggage should process through Farnborough much more quickly now.

Following the amendment to the UK Government's Aviation Security Regulations on 1 June, Farnborough Airport has completed its $3.8 million (£3m) security screening upgrade. This significant investment includes the installation of two cabin baggage screening lanes equipped with the latest C3 screening technology along with advanced security scanners.

For baggage screening, passengers are now able to leave large electronic items such as laptops, tablets and phones in their cabin baggage. Additionally, passengers can 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, and resulting in a more efficient passenger journey through the airport. For passenger screening, the introduction of modern security scanners, replacing traditional metal detectors, ensures the highest levels of security in a non-intrusive manner.

CEO Simon Geere says: "The completion of our £3 million 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 the latest 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."
