In accordance with a direction from the Australian Government, upgrades to security screening equipment have begun at Brisbane Airport’s Domestic and International Terminals. All major Australian airports are undertaking similar upgrades, aligning national security screening standards with those of major airports around the world.
Phase 1: Complete
The first part of the project was undertaken between November 2019 and March 2020. It involved the replacement of some of our walk-through metal detectors with non-invasive body scanning equipment at locations across both the Domestic and International Terminals.
Planning is underway for the next stages of the project, which will include:
- Replacement of all metal detectors with body scanning equipment
- The replacement of carry-on cabin baggage screening conveyors with computed tomography (CT) scanning systems
- The roll-out of advanced screening technology for all checked-baggage.
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is targeting completion of these activities by 2025.
BAC is committed to ensuring the safety of all people who visit the airport. While current security screening systems allow us to maintain this high standard, the progressive introduction of advanced screening technology at BNE not only achieves compliance with the Australian Government’s direction, but also:
- Aligns Brisbane Airport’s security screening processes with major airports worldwide
- Provides an added and enhanced layer of security
- Offers a streamlined, non-invasive screening process for passengers.
