Gatwick Airport has unveiled its new South Terminal Security area.

Processing every passenger in less than five minutes, 19 new security lanes allow almost 5,000 people per hour to pass straight through into the departure lounge. The result of a £45million investment, this large, high-tech security area for the South Terminal includes 15 standard lanes for passengers, two dedicated lanes for families with young children and passengers with reduced mobility, and two lanes for premium travellers.

Smarter scanning technology and automated processes will speed up travel through the security area by 25% - increasing the passenger capacity for each of the 19 new lanes to 250 passengers per hour.

In addition, passengers travelling through the new security area will benefit from security access gates where they can swipe their boarding card or Smartphone displaying their boarding card.
