Optosecurity Remote Screening at Brussels Airport - Connector Opens March 26

Connector, the most important development at Brussels Airport since 2002

(March 24 2015 / Brussels)  Today Brussels Airport Company, in the presence of His Majesty the King, officially opened the Connector building. Brussels Airport built Connector, a 75 million-euro investment, to increase passenger comfort. The building links the terminal above-ground to the two piers so passengers need less time to go from the check-in to their boarding gate. Henceforth, passengers can wait to board their plane in an open and airy building that besides a spectacular tarmac view offers a contemporary mix of shops and restaurants.  Connector will be open to the passengers as of Thursday 26 March.  

"After passing through the automated access control, the passengers immediately arrive at the screening platform. With 25 screening lanes, this innovative platform is the biggest in Europe. Moreover, it uses remote screening. The security agents who view the x-ray images are no longer sitting next to the lane but in a separate control room which allows them to better concentrate."
