With the help of the Computer Tomography X-ray machine, authorities can simply check the products and things packed inside the bags.

As everything will soon be checked using the new technology, the chances of physically examining will be dropping as well. Plastic trays used by flyers will also reduce, shared Satyaki Raghunath, the Chief Operating Officer of the Bengaluru International Airport Limited.

Soon, passengers will be done with a faster screening process that will help them save overall time as well. Usually, people need to spend a long time with such security checks but this machine has the potential to decrease that as well. The trial will be starting very soon, in the upcoming weeks only. The plan is to start the advanced security check process with domestic passengers.
