Passengers departing from Stansted will now use state-of-the-art smart technology before they enter the security screening area as part of the airport’s drive to improve the passenger experience.


The new self-service ‘Smart Access’ scanners will replace the manual boarding pass checks for passengers flying from the airport. The system, much like the Oyster card system in use at London Underground Stations, scans boarding passes and verifies that passengers are travelling on the correct flight and date. 

A dedicated entrance will be available for wheelchair users and passengers with reduced mobility, while child buggies will be able to pass through the wider gates available at each entry point.
