When Oslo Airport’s new departures hall opens in April 2017 it will be equipped with 11 security lanes, increasing the total to 30 across the airport. The new lanes are described as “the first of their kind worldwide”, and are designed to significantly enhance the security check experience for passengers.
There will be more room to place hand baggage on the belt before travellers pass through the security check, and more room to organise the hand luggage after it has passed through the inspection.
“We know that sufficient space to take out their electronics and liquids is something that is high on our passengers’ wish list,” says Joachim Westher Andersen, Head of Communications.
A prototype of the new lanes has been installed in the current departures hall to encourage passengers to test the design.
