Passenger Security Screening

Passenger Security Screening

o&i consulting has extensive experience in advising airport operators on their screening requirements, integrating change in aviation security environments and improving the performance of their search facilities.

We use our skills and international experience in planning, designing and reengineering screening operations to uncover ‘hidden’ passenger search capacity and maximise the use of available capacity, whilst adhering to security requirements. This not only reduces congestion and improves the customer experience, but also reduces operating costs and enables clients to defer expensive capital expenditure programmes.

By applying production and demand-driven planning techniques, o&i consulting also assists clients in minimising the effect of change – such as new equipment, new regulations and increased threat levels – on passenger security performance and customer service. In advance of LAGs Phase 1 regulatory change we worked closely with airport operators to assess the impact of future LAGs legislation, trial available technology, determine equipment requirements and advise on procurement processes, as well as recommend process and layout changes to incorporate new equipment, lead implementation and provide post-implementation performance improvement recommendations.

With our broad knowledge of available passenger screening equipment, current and future legislation, technology requirements to meet legislative requirements, and an understanding of an airport’s operational performance targets, o&i consulting is in a position to enable clients to deliver a passenger security checkpoint that meets all its requirements and expectations. Utilising analytical and scenario modelling skills, we are also able to advise clients when their facilities are likely to exceed capacity based on current and potential performance.

o&i consulting is a supplier to the European Commission on its Aviation Security Framework and has recently completed a study on behalf of the EC to understand how best to enhance airport passenger security and the feasibility of allowing the future carriage of liquids in cabin baggage through airports.
