Civil Aviation Authority has installed the new modern and automated baggage detecting handling system at Entebbe international Airport to tighten security.
John Kagolo, the director Airport and Aviation security says the machines which have been in place were installed 20years back and were having problems, causing flight delays.
The new system has a highly sensitive detection mechanism and specialized equipment which tresses any sign of having any hazardous machine or object in the baggage. Immediately after detecting any suspicious baggage, the system automatically reject that baggage from the transit and sends its image to security control room to conduct further checking.
