LAX unveils state-of-the-art baggage screening system


Los Angeles International Airport is the world’s first airport to implement the Siemens Apron Baggage Screening (SABS) solution.

Los Angeles International Airport has become the first airport in the world to introduce the Siemens Apron Baggage Screening (SABS) solution.

Located in Terminal 5, which is used exclusively by Delta Air Lines, the new system provides an inline baggage matrix with explosive detection system (EDS) devices linked to the existing baggage handling system.

The SABS system is TSA (Transportation Security Administration)-compliant and as well as increasing security, it is also designed to provide a more seamless airport experience for the passenger.

Rather than having their bags tagged in one area and then dropping it off in a separate screening zone, passengers can simply drop their bags at the ticket counter.

Jay Turney, Corporate Real Estate, Delta Air Lines, said: “For airlines, this new baggage handling system is a more efficient, cost-effective way to modernise luggage handling and security screening without interrupting day-to-day operations. Also, removing large screening systems from airport lobbies can reduce congestion at check-in, further enhancing security operations and making it more convenient for passengers.”
