London Luton Airport (LLA) has announced a new contract with Copenhagen Optimization (CopOpt) to introduce its Better Security platform, in order to improve the efficiency of LLA’s security search area.
CopOpt will deliver the system through Better Airport, its cloud-based planning platform.
LLA has experienced rapid growth in recent years. Last year, passenger numbers grew by 18.5%. To meet this increased demand, the airport says it is carrying out the biggest investment in its history to expand annual capacity and upgrade the terminal building. Improvements to the security area are a key part of this transformation, to allow the operations team to manage the increased passenger numbers.
Neil Thompson, Operations Director at London Luton Airport, said: “This new planning system marks another milestone in the current transformation of the airport. Passengers will benefit from a smoother journey through the security area thanks to this innovative system. I look forward to working with CopOpt as our redevelopment continues.”
