New Zealand’s Aviation Security Service (AvSec) has appointed Smiths Detection to supply its advanced checkpoint security technology for five major international airports in New Zealand.

Smiths Detection will supply 35 HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX computed tomography (CT) X-ray machines at Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Queenstown and Wellington.

Highest level of security

The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX, which meets international regulatory requirements in both the USA and EU, ensures the highest level of security while improving the experience for both passengers and operators.

The carry-on baggage scanner can speed up security screening by allowing passengers to leave laptops and liquids in their cabin baggage, as well as deliver cost savings to airports as it is the most energy efficient checkpoint CT X-ray on the market.

Smiths Detection’s North & South Asia Market Head, Aurelien Guilbert said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our long-standing relationship with New Zealand AvSec. Through the roll-out of this technology, passengers flying out of New Zealand’s international airports will have a smoother and more efficient checkpoint experience.”
