India’s NSCBI Airport to install in-line baggage X-ray machines

An in-line baggage screening system is scheduled to start functioning in both international and domestic terminals at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International (NSCBI) Airport in Kolkata, India.

The installation of the system is expected to be completed by the end of June this year, when various security agencies will test the system.

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport director Kaushik Bhattacharya told The Telegraph: “Today we decided that the installation of the system in the international and domestic sections should be completed by June-end and the system will be ready for tests. The system will be functional by the end of August.”

Once the system becomes functional, passengers will deposit their registered luggage at the check-in portals of the respective airlines without getting it scanned by stand-alone X-ray machines.

Passengers currently have to stand in a queue to get their luggage scanned by the stand-alone machines.
