    • QUEUES CUT BY 50% AS NEW SECURITY CHANNELS OPENS AT CITY AIRPORT

      Monday 21 Dec 2009

      Queues for passengers travelling through security at George Best Belfast City Airport will be cut by 50% thanks to new equipment and increased search channels which have opened today in time for the busy Christmas period.
       
      The significant investment includes four new archways, increased staffing and the latest screening technology which reduces the nuisance alarm rate of harmless items. A fast track lane specifically for business class travellers will open next month.

      It’s the latest phase in an ongoing £6 million terminal enhancement project which last month saw the opening of a new departures lounge creating 20 new jobs.

      Stephen Moreland, Head of Security at the airport says queues will be slashed.

      “We’re constantly making improvements to improve the passenger experience.

      “No-one likes queuing so we have invested heavily in additional archways and screening equipment which will speed passengers journey times through security by 50%.”
