Airport Body Scans To Be Installed At Schiphol Airport

After the recent attempted terrorist attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 (operated by Delta Airlines) from Amsterdam to Detroit, the Dutch government has given the go ahead for full body scanners to be installed at the airport.

Within three weeks of the attack by Nigerian born Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the full body scanners will be in place and used on all flights to the United States.

The new devices take a full scan of the body, picking up many items that traditional airport security measures would miss, effectively it allows for a full strip search to be carried out without anyone else being present.

Dutch officials have said that after reviewing the security measures undertaken at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam they found that all checks had been carried out on Abdulmutallab correctly, a passenger list which included his name had also been passed on to US authorities before the flight.

A passenger would enter the scanner, a scan would be taken, this picture would then be sent to a computer in another location for analysis and alert security at the scanner if something suspicious is found. This allows the process to remain quite anonymous as no identifying information would be sent .

It is predicted that the attack of Christmas Day will further increase security measures in airports through the world, Manchester International Airport has already tested this technology with great success and Nigeria has said that in-light of its citizens attempt to blow up the aircraft it plans to buy some of the units.
