Munich Airport to revamp Terminal 2’s central security checkpoint
The renovation of the central security checkpoint at Munich Airport’s Terminal 2 has begun as part of the gateway’s plans to transform the area with a new layout and state-of-the-art technology.
When completed in the autumn of 2024, instead of the familiar traditional checkpoints, new lanes with innovative technology will be used to welcome and process passengers.
As a result of the revamp, which the airport notes will ensure that passengers of Lufthansa and its partner airlines will benefit from faster, more effective procedures and much greater convenience, in the week commencing Monday, December 12, 2022, Lufthansa’s Service Center on Departures level 04 will be sealed off and dismantled to create the required space.
A newly designed Service Center will be opened in the southern part of the check-in level. During the renovation phase of the screening lanes starting in January, passengers will be rerouted, and the number of screening lanes will be reduced at times.
Once the work is complete, passengers will benefit from a total of 15 new security screening lanes that meet the highest standards in terms of convenience and ergonomics.
The district government of Upper Bavaria, the body responsible for passenger checkpoints at Munich Airport, is installing special CT scanners here.
As well as checking all items of carry-on baggage for solid and liquid explosives, the CT scanners provide the screening staff with a three-dimensional view of each carry-on baggage item on a screen. This means that electronic devices and liquids will no longer have to be removed from passengers’ baggage.
The airport believes that the revamp will significantly improve the flow of passengers through the screening lanes.
