It has been announced that Bristol Airport in the UK’s West Country is to embark upon a £24 million project to upgrade the airport technology, facilities and capacity, including security upgrades and a new 12-lane security area.
The plan is part of an ongoing initiative to increase security at the airport, while keeping passenger disruption and delays to a minimum, delivering ‘faster, more efficient processes.’
Part of the project will also include additional security to current baggage handling processes, particularly baggage screening.
Fraser Dury, Bristol Airport head of engineering said, ‘We are committed to leveraging the most effective technologies and solutions to ensure high standards of security are maintained with minimal impact on passengers.’
The airport plans will also include the upgrade of communications systems throughout the airport environment. The entire project is geared towards scalability and flexibility for the future, and will give Bristol Airport a firm foundation for continued growth.
