In line with new technology and legislations, new security (body) scanners were deployed across all security lanes within Glasgow Airport from 20th December 2016.
We know going through security-checks can be daunting to those who don’t travel often, but we can assure you that the security scanners we use are completely safe. The UK government concluded that the use of this type of equipment does not pose any risk to health. The scanning equipment does not produce x-rays, nor does it emit ionising radiation.
Our security scanners use millimetre waves – radio waves that have a power output much lower than portable personal devices like mobile phones. The security scanners can detect a wide range of potential security threats, and none of the data images are stored.
The image produced by a security scanner looks like this:
If you wish to opt out of the security scanner enhanced search, there are private security checks available – please ask a member of our staff.
You can find more information about security scanners used at UK airports on the Department for Transport website. Alternatively, here is more information and details on the security body scanners used at Glasgow Airport.
