New security system at Jersey airport launched

Updated: Jul 28, 2023

A new security system has launched at the airport as part of a £3m project to improve customer facilities and security technology.

Ports of Jersey confirmed the equipment, which was installed in June, would allow passengers to carry any amount of individual liquid, aerosols or gel containers of up to two litres in their hand luggage.

One electronic device can be kept in the hand luggage, but any extra devices must be removed and placed in a separate tray.

Maria Le Tiec, head of security, said it had installed two of the three new x-ray machines "in time for the airport's peak summer period".

She said: "Full body scanners are scheduled for introduction by October 2023. “We will be erecting signage to guide passengers through the new layout and will issue further updates as the work progresses.”
