Changes to the Airport Baggage Handling System
Although tourism has not yet fully recovered, Keflavik International Airport is mostly back to a steady pace. In September, roughly 326 thousand passengers passed through the airport.
In fact, the airport was buzzing with life when a journalist and photographer recently visited the premises. Maren Lind Másdóttir, the Director of Assets and Infrastructure at Isavia, the service company which owns and handles the operation of the airport, welcomed us.
She now oversees the large and challenging task of updating the airport’s luggage systems. The task is urgent, as new EU legislation has called for renewal of the so-called Explosive Detection System (EDS) machines, intended to ensure safety of passengers and planes taking off from Keflavik International Airport.
Replacement of Old Equipment in the Airport’s Buzzing Environment
“What makes the task very challenging is the replacement of old equipment with new in the airport’s buzzing environment. This new equipment supplied by Smiths Detection, a global leader in the production of security equipment of this kind, is significantly larger than the old machines.”
