Admit it! We all know how annoying it gets when you almost miss your flight because of the slow security checking or accidentally leave your laptop in the tray and realize it after you’ve taken off. That’s one true feeling that all frequent flyers want to dodge. Am I right? Kempegowda International Airport, one of the most packed and hectic airports in India, is now ready to make your security check-in experience a sleek and speedy one.

Imagine breezing through security checks at the airport without having to dig out your mobile phones, laptops, or any items containing (LAGs) from your bags. Sounds like a miracle, right? Well, brace yourself for the reality. Thanks to the installation of CTX at our very own Namma Bengaluru Airport. These machines use state-of-the-art technology to scan all your stuffs in the bags and detect any threats without requiring passengers to remove their electronic items or LAGs.

CTX Machines: A Game-Changer or A Headache for the Indian Aviation System?

Well, not everyone is happy with this innovation. The BCAS has given a tight deadline of December for the airports that handle more than 50 lakh passengers annually to install these machines. These include some of the most sensitive airports in the country, such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Chennai. The APAO has appealed to the BCAS to rethink this deadline, saying that it is impossible to get, set up, and test the machines in such a short time. The APAO has also pointed out the high cost of the machines and the need for proper training of the staff.

The CTX machines promise to enhance the security and convenience of the passengers, but they also create some challenges for the operators. What do you think? And how excited are you about the latest developments at Bengaluru Airport? Share your views in the comments.
