Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India, will begin trial of full body scanners from May this year.
The trials will provide the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security a constructive insight into the functioning of the equipment.
Airport officials said the scanners would not compromise passenger privacy as images taken by the scanner would be converted to a graphic.
The airport has not yet signed a contract for supply of the equipment, but is expected to reach a decision by the end of the Commonwealth Games in October.
The Indian Government said that around 125-200 full body scanners would be required for Delhi and Mumbai, estimated to cost between Rs8m and Rs10m each ($160,000 to $200,000).
Existing security checks involve pat-down searches, door frame metal detectors and hand-held device scans that can detect metals.
Non-metallic objects cannot be detected by these devices like the one carried by the Nigerian passenger Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who allegedly tried to blow up a US-bound plane on Christmas Day.
The airport authorities also plan to issue biometric identification cards with tamper-proof features to all ground staff and airline officials from March at an estimated cost of Rs10m ($217,010).
