Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has opted for Rohde & Schwarz’s latest generation of security scanners across its Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands airports.
With their fast scan cycle and open architecture, the QPS201 scanners are expected to assist in future-proofing security operations at MAG airports.
Up to 100 scanners will be installed across all three airports over the next five years, with the first six scanners being deployed at London Stansted this month.
Commenting on how providing a positive passenger experience is a key focus for the airport group, David Quayle, Manchester transformation terminal design and operations lead, MAG said:
“We selected the R&S QPS201 for its open architecture design and scanning efficiency. We concluded that Rohde & Schwarz will be a responsive and professional partner, and that their product will assist our security operations.”
Expressing his delight at working in partnership with MAG, Frank Mackel VP Europe at Rohde & Schwarz noted that the new scanners “aim to put passengers at ease, featuring a more relaxed pose position, a more open design and a faster scan time. The new scanners also benefit secruity staff, giving them greater visual access to passengers. With this package of benefits, we hope more airports can benefit from teh QPS201 to help them further increase the flow of passengers passing through their security channels.”
