The new airport security facility located on Departures Mezzanine 1 has been refurbished and is now fully operational with 21 security lanes equipped with CT scanners, replacing the X-ray scanners previously used.

Passengers traveling through Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will no longer need to remove electronic devices and liquids from their hand luggage when going through security, thanks to the new computed tomography (CT) security scanners installed at the airport.

The new airport security facility located on Departures Mezzanine 1 has been refurbished and is now fully operational with 21 security lanes equipped with CT scanners, replacing the X-ray scanners previously used.

Hedzer Komduur, Deputy Director Safety, Security and Environment at Royal Schiphol Group, said: “This is a world first. Good news for passengers, as they no longer have to take their liquids and electronic devices out of their bags when going through security. It’s also good for security personnel. The scanner allows them to check in their luggage on their 3D screen and even rotate it 360 degrees.

The 21 security lanes of Departures 1 can now be easily connected to the 14 security lanes of Departures 2. According to the airport, these 35 security lanes together form one of the largest security filters in the world, equipped with point. designed to make the process more efficient. In case of crowds at Departure 1, travelers can go through Departure 2 and thus improve circulation.

It is always recommended that travelers pack liquids in their checked baggage and only bring bottles/containers of up to 100ml in a resealable, transparent bag in their hand baggage. Bottles/containers larger than 100ml are only permitted if approved by CT scan and a member of security staff. Additionally, restrictions on liquids in hand luggage still apply at most other airports, which could cause problems on a return flight or during a transfer.
