Guernsey Ports will refresh its airport hand luggage screening equipment during the first half of this year, with a budget of £1.5 million as part of a broader investment programme in security at Guernsey Airport.
The Ports say there will be some temporary disruption to security processes during the project as there will be one lane in operation. This may result in longer queue times, particularly at peak periods.
But they added that this investment supports the Guernsey Airport Master Plan’s aims of maintaining safety and regulatory compliance whilst improving the customer experience.
They say the new scanning equipment could be adapted to meet future airport requirements.
Enabling work will commence shortly, with the bulk of the construction activity due to take place from late April to early July 2022.

Guernsey Ports’ Head of Passenger Operations and Aviation Security, Steve Langlois, said the investments would improve the overall passenger experience at the Airport.
“They will have more time to relax and enjoy the facilities and amenities in our departure lounge before boarding their flight,” said Mr Langlois.
“These works will cause some disruption at times and we are grateful for the understanding of our passengers.
“Whilst the construction and delivery phase for this investment is relatively short, we advise all passengers to allow plenty of time for their journey through the airport, especially during busy peak periods."
