Abu Dhabi Airports has deployed a new automated tray return system (ATRS) to accelerate the process of hand luggage screening at Terminal 3 in Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).

This new system enables baggage to be processed more than four times faster than the regular screening lanes, thereby reducing the wait times and congestion, and offering an easy travel experience for passengers. 

Abu Dhabi Airports acting chief operations officer Mohammed Al Katheeri said: “We are constantly looking at ways that we can innovate and provide our passengers with a smooth, world class travel experience.

"We can now process more passengers per hour in a secure and controlled environment, improving overall operational efficiency.”

"The automated tray return system with a remote screening feature in Terminal 3 at AUH, is the latest best-in-class addition to an array of technologies that we have put in place.

"We can now process more passengers per hour in a secure and controlled environment, improving overall operational efficiency and enhancing public safety and security.”

The new ATRS offers four stations that enables travellers to simultaneously prepare their bags for screening.

The system also features two buffer stations, seven redress stations for cleared trays, four reject stations for suspicious trays, and two search stations.

Operating with a Hi-Scan 7555 aTix machine, this system is equipped with two operator work stations allocated remotely in an imaging room, through which live images can be separately analysed.

If a tray has suspicious contents, these can be diverted to the search area for further probing, away from the cleared lane.
