Amsterdam says goodbye to manual baggage checks for passengers
Schiphol Airport will use scanners
No more manual checks: this is the watchword of the Dutch airport of Amsterdam-Schiphol (read also the article published by AVIONEWS), the airport that has decided to modify the operations concerning the hand luggage of passengers. Normally, there are employees who take care of all this before the traveller boards the plane, a way to demonstrate that there are no liquids or other suspicious elements in the suitcase. In the Dutch hub it will rely on scanners, more precisely in Terminal 1 which aims to achieve less space occupation and the progressive elimination of hand checks. In addition, privacy will be more respected as the passenger will not have to be embarrassed by the contents of its baggage. The first tests involving the devices in question date back to 2015, with an introduction that has been very rapid over time. Among other things, with the official debut, it is the first time that an airport around for the moment focuses on a different technology than traditional habits. In the event that something abnormal is not found, there will be no need to open the suitcase in front of other travellers waiting to board. Only in the opposite hypothesis, the baggage will remain at the control for the ritual checks. Everything is ready for the first quick application, you just have to wait for the first feedback and above all how the consumer will have reacted.
