Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (İSG) Airport signed an agreement with security systems manufacturer Nuctech to increase the control and flow efficiency of baggage delivered from check-in counters and sent to the plane.
Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (İSG) continues to equip its terminal services with modern technology to provide better service to Istanbul, the 3rd city that receives the most tourists in Europe. Thanks to the new generation computerized tomography (CT) explosive detection system (EDS) devices purchased by İSG within the scope of the ECAC Standard 3.1 development project, the transit time of passenger luggage under the chute at the airport will be accelerated.
The era of new generation CT EDS scanning devices begins in OHS
Beijing-based Nuctech, which has a large market share with a product range of more than 300 products in the field of X-ray devices and smart security solutions worldwide, provides services to more than 170 countries with its production centers in China, Poland and Brazil. ISG, which purchased the company's WooKong H model new generation CT EDS scanning devices, hosted Nuctech officials together with the Malaysian Airports Group Board of Directors at Sabiha Gökçen Terminal on Tuesday, October 17. Representatives from Nuctech Beijing headquarters and Türkiye offices attended the meeting. Nuctech Sales Director said that the WooKong H model device, which reflects the three-dimensional (3D) image and multi-slice images of the luggage on the screen in color, thanks to the state-of-the-art CT scanning technology, has reached the next level in terms of both scanning tunnel size and image quality, and also with the luggage handling system (BHS). He stated that it can be fully integrated.
Aircraft and passenger waiting times are reduced to a minimum with WooKong H model devices
Sabiha Gökçen Airport, which closed 2022 with 30.8 million passengers, preferred WooKong H model devices to manage terminal operations more efficiently and increase passenger comfort in the conditions of a global travel craze after the pandemic and a busy tourism season regardless of summer and winter.
The new generation WooKong H model device protects terminal and aircraft security by detecting dangerous objects such as explosives in baggage from different angles and in high resolution at a single scanning level, with its sensitive detection ability, and also contributes to minimizing aircraft and passenger waiting times with its wide scanning capacity.
Murad: “The speed of our airport operations will increase”
Making a statement about CT EDS devices that will increase airport security and speed up passenger baggage control, OHS Board Advisor Dato Azmi Murad said, "With these state-of-the-art scanning devices that we offer to our guests, the control of passenger luggage under the chute will be accelerated and thus the speed of our airport operations will increase."
Nuctech West Asia General Manager Ronnie Meng said, “It is a great pride for us to be in cooperation with Sabiha Gökçen Airport. We have been serving the Turkish market for 21 years and we believe that we have taken our portfolio to the next level with OHS. "We will continue to work with our motto of the best service and contribute to airport operations with different technologies," he said.
