Smiths Detection Equips New Airport Outside London

Smiths Detection today announced completion of the aviation security contract for the newly opened terminal extension at Southend Airport, east of London.

The project includes Smiths Detection's high-speed automatic explosives X-Ray detection systems for checked baggage, carry-on baggage scanners and trace detection equipment.

Mal Maginnis, President of Smiths Detection, said: "Southend Airport will be one of the travel hubs for visitors to the 2012 Summer Olympics. Our advanced detection systems will help this ambitious airport meet its long-term goal of handling some two million passengers a year by 2020."

The terminal, operational since the end of February and now linked to central London by a high-speed rail service, was completed in good time for the Olympic Games which open in July.
