The airport now has 18 checkpoints in total.

The new checkpoints are equipped with technology that allows remote screening, and an automatic system which returns empty trays to the beginning of the queue.

Remote screening allows operators to analyze x-ray pictures in a calm environment which allows them to concentrate. In addition, the number of operators can be changed according to how busy the checkpoint is at a given time.

The curved design of the new checkpoints means that they are more spacious and brighter than the older security corridors.

With the current capacity expansion, the maximum waiting time before the security check is expected to stay under the international standard of 15 minutes, even in the busiest periods.

The cost of the new checkpoints was nearly HUF 440 million.
