Heathrow introduces new CT scanners

Heathrow has invested over £50 million (R8,4bn) in computed tomography security equipment that will allow passengers to keep their liquids and laptops inside their cabin baggage when passing through security.

The airport plans to install the new equipment across its terminals by 2022.

Once fully operational, the enhanced technology is expected to significantly reduce the amount of single-use plastics at Heathrow, with passengers no longer required to put liquids in plastic bags.
