Four Domestic Wing Portals Get In-line Baggage X-ray Machines


Four out of five computer tomography X-ray (CTX) machines for in-line baggage have been installed in the domestic wing of the integrated terminal at Kolkata airport. But flyers have to wait for five more months before they can deposit their luggage directly at the check-in counters without having to queue up to get X-ray done separately before check-in.

“Out of the five portals in the domestic wing, CTX machines have been installed on four conveyor belts that will scan bags on the move. Another CTX machine will be fitted to the fifth portal later. Prior to that, the three portals in the international wing will get CTX machines. Installing them will take three months. Thereafter, the system has to be vetted and cleared and that will take at least two months more,” said Kolkata airport director Kaushik Bhattacharjee. Read more
