Qantus' multi-view X-ray machines can scan laptops in bags

Helping to speed up queues, less fumbling at the carry-on checking point

If you do a fair bit of travel and can't be without your laptop wherever you go, you'll understand the annoyance of having to dig your laptop out of its bag every time for carry-on scanning.

 

QANTAS is actually working on a technology that could see an end to this hassle which harnesses new multi-view X-ray machines that provide an enhanced display that is much clearer and more detailed.

A trial of the technology took place in Sydney recently and Qantas officials and passengers were both very satisfied with the results. The security process was sped up noticably and helped eliminate delays caused by people who don't take their laptops out ahead of time.

 

But despite the trial's success, there is still a hurdle; the Office of Transport Security is not fond of any new procedures that would allow passengers to keep their laptops in their bags. Hopefully in time they will take a closer look and see it is a faster alternative without security being compromised.
