Protecting public health at the checkpoint

Protecting public health at the checkpoint

Reducing touchpoints along the passenger journey

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed expectations of safety and security, with a potential long term impact on previously routine behaviour and processes.  For the aviation industry, meeting these expectations will be critical to allow operations to function as efficiently and safely as possible.

Smiths Detection is ready to partner with airports to help restore passenger and employee confidence through the equipment we supply, the partners we work with and the safety measures we can help put in place.

A coherent response will include preventative measures such as cleaning of equipment, minimising contact between travellers and staff and in the longer term the introduction of new technologies such as biometrics to help reduce the risks further.

Our team of experts can work with airports to conduct a complete review of your screening operation and provide advice on effective measures and process changes – we predict the impact these changes would have on your operation with our existing modelling tools.

You can find a growing list of our resources on responding to the COVID-19 crisis below or you can reach out to us for advice today.

Advanced Checkpoint Screening and Management Platforms

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the air travel industry and will undoubtedly lead to lasting changes in passenger expectations. While regaining the confidence of travellers through additional hygiene measures and the reduction of touchpoints along the passenger journey are key objectives of current airport recovery plans, improving operational efficiency will be just as important.

In this white paper we will explore the benefits of integrated checkpoint screening and management platforms and their relevance to the recovery of airports from the impact of COVID-19.
