In conformity with the directive issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad has commenced a three-month trial of the body scanner for passengers on a voluntary basis. As a part of trial phase, one body scanner has been placed at the domestic departure terminal. Upon successful completion of the trial, which began on October 12, 2019, the body scanners will be deployed across the terminal for security check.

The body scanners utilise the Safe radio wave security system, which is an image free scanning technique, and hence poses no threat to the passenger’s privacy.

How does the system work:

  • Enter the body scanner
  • Stand on the yellow marks, feet apart
  • Raise your arms above your head
  • Stand still for two seconds
  • Proceed to boarding gate

If implemented effectively, the body scanner system will contribute towards an easy and quick security clearance at RGIA, Hyderabad.
