The new device will ensure compliance with the latest aviation security standards 

Guernsey Airport’s first of two Hold Baggage System (HBS) scanners has been delivered and is being installed in a newly constructed area in the passenger terminal.

According to Steve Langlois, Guernsey Ports’ head of passenger operations: “The delivery of the first HBS scanner is a significant milestone in the project so far. Extensive testing and commissioning of the HBS scanner will now take place before passengers’ hold baggage items are processed through it. The new system will remove the need for random manual searches of hold baggage by security staff.”  

In another boost to passengers, those flying out of Guernsey with Aurigny Air will be able to take advantage of the airline’s Twilight Check-in service, open seven days a week, allowing baggage items to be checked-in on the afternoon prior to the day of travel.
