The new C3 scanners will replace the currently in place X-ray machines, giving a new image of a bag’s contents to security officers, meaning liquid and electronics won’t need to be taken out of the bag while going through security, heavily reducing the time it takes to pass the check.
A Dublin Airport spokesperson spoke on Twitter about the installation, “By mid-June, we’ll have 5 scanners installed in our 2 terminals, including this new lane in T2. The ramp-up in installations follows a successful pilot trial of the technology over the past 6 months.”
Normal rules will apply until all the machines are installed, as some of the floor needs to be reconstructed to burden the weight of them at Terminal 1.
Terminal 2 is to be completed next spring, with Terminal 1 following later on.
