Smiths Detection to deploy first ever Smart Security Checkpoint at Kansai Int. Airport
16 March 2017
Smiths Detection is working with Kansai International Airport (KIX) to deploy the first ever Smart Security Checkpoint in Japan. The Smart Security Checkpoint is an integrated system that combines walk-through metal detectors with passenger security scanners, cabin baggage X-ray machines, an automated tray return system and an advanced image and checkpoint management platform to provide a seamless, more efficient, and less intrusive experience for passengers. Built around Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040-2is X-ray scanner, an advanced dual-view X-ray inspection system with automatic explosive detection capability, the Smart Security system is designed to significantly reduce waiting times at the security checkpoint, which means higher passenger satisfaction and improved operational efficiencies at Terminal 2 Kansai International Airport (KIX).

Finavia acquired three new sweeper & blower vehicles for Helsinki-Vantaa Airport
16 March 2017
Finnish airport operator Finavia has acquired three new sweeper and blower vehicles for Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL) at a cost of approximately EUR 3 million. The Finnish-made Vammas PSB 5500 sweeper and blower vehicles measure roughly 25 m in length and use a giant plough at the front and brushes on the underside the vehicle to remove snow from the asphalt. A rear blower helps to remove any remaining snow. Heini Noronen-Juhola, Finavia’s vice president at Helsinki Airport, said: “Due to the expansion of the airport, snow needs to be cleared from larger areas. To guarantee a smooth flow of traffic and maintain Finavia’s leading position in snow-how, we will acquire additional vehicles for future winters. Even under the heaviest snowfall, we are able to clear the runway in 11 min.”

Dubai Airports plans to introduce new baggage rule to help improve service
16 March 2017
Dubai Airports plans to introduce a new baggage rule to help improve service, reduce the risk of mishandlings, and enhance the performance of its check-in and baggage operation at Dubai International. Ali Angizeh, vice president of terminal operations at Dubai International Airport (DXB), said: “Dubai International provides some of the most sophisticated baggage systems in the world. However, even the most technologically advanced systems can be disrupted by irregular shaped or oversized bags. Bags that are round or do not have a flat surface of any kind are by far the largest source of baggage jams. These jams can shut down sections of our system, delay baggage delivery to the aircraft and inconvenience our customers.” Accordingly, from 8 March 2017, bags without flat surfaces are being rejected at check-in. Dubai Airports has advised all airlines operating into DXB of the imminent change and has updated its website, mobile app and signage across the airport to help raise awareness. “Passengers, who show up at the airport with non-compliant baggage will be given the option to have it repacked in boxes for a fee,” Angizeh said. At some 140 km in length, DXB’s baggage handling system is among the largest in the world. It has 15,000 trays and is powered by 21,000 motors.

16 March 2017
Brazil’s Tancredo Neves International Airport (CNF) has implemented Rockwell Collins’ ARINC vMUSE common use passenger processing solution (CUPPS) to enhance its services for travellers. Implemented by airport operator, BH Airport, the new solution is expected to streamline airport processes and reduce costs. ARINC vMUSE is claimed to provide an improved check-in solution for travellers by enhancing the airport’s existing infrastructure. Its scalable, open design can be easily integrated with flight information displays, baggage management, resource management, and operational databases. BH Airport infrastructure director, Adriano Pinho, said: “CNF, one of the main hubs in Brazil, is experiencing rapid passenger growth. We want to be a new gateway to enter Brazil and Rockwell Collins’ ARINC airport solutions are enabling us to provide services that allow us to cost-effectively handle the increase in passengers as we grow.”

16 March 2017
Parking management firm APCOA has entered into a new partnership with POD Point, a manufacturer and supplier of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, which will see charging units installed in airport car parks throughout the UK. The agreement has already seen 15 POD Point units installed at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) and Birmingham’s Broadway Plaza retail centre. Erik Fairbairn, CEO of POD Point, said: “This partnership agreement has the potential to be a game-changer for the EV industry in the UK, and not only in volume. Working with APCOA means that access to EV will be granted to a huge section of the population at various touch-points in their daily life, as well as putting a measure in place to generate footfall in retail centres and provide added services that encourage customer retention for businesses.”

Vanderlande to install eight SCANNOJET at Bergen Airport Flesland
16 March 2017
Vanderlande has been awarded the contract to install eight SCANNOJET automated passenger checkpoints at Bergen Airport Flesland in Norway, the second largest of the 46 airports in the country owned and operated by Avinor. Competition for the contract was intense with seven unique bids tendered. Vanderlande was ultimately selected for the project owing to the efficient design and delivery method of the SCANNOJET system. The company achieved the highest overall score with regard to key criteria, such as total cost of ownership, performance and project planning. Vanderlande said that it was a “significant milestone in a competitive market” that has enjoyed rapid growth in recent times. Alongside the eight SCANNOJET units, Bergen Airport has requested Passenger Checkpoint (PCP) furniture and that the new systems are fully prepared for and compatible with remote screening functionality. SCANNOJET works by guaranteeing a steady stream of trays to the initial point on the conveyor. This new technology has been engineered to improve both security and the passenger experience at an airport’s most sensitive area.
