Lithuania’s Kaunas Airport has started installing new generation baggage scanners that will allow passengers to undergo screening without the need to remove electronic devices and liquids from their suitcases or backpacks, Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports, LTOU), the airport operator in Lithuania, says.
The airport also warns that passengers may experience some short-term inconveniences in some periods in November due to the installation works, but later on the new generation technology will make passenger baggage screening more convenient and less stressful.
According to LTOU, the new-standard scanners and lines will help to handle more passengers over the same period of time, and passengers will no longer have to remove any electronic devices or liquids from their hand luggage, although they will still have to be in containers of under 100 ml. The total amount of liquids per passenger will also continue to be limited to 1 liter.
The new scanners should be operational by January.
Dimark S.A., a Polish company, won LTOU’s international public tender for the installation of next-generation scanners and baggage lines in 2022, with the project’s total value standing at 5.8 million euros, excluding VAT.
