Pakistan Airports Soon to Have Cutting-Edge Security Equipment Installed by the UK

The British Department for Transport (DFT) decided to give Pakistan cutting-edge equipment for airport security. According to sources, the DFT-supplied cutting-edge security technology will be installed at the airports in Lahore and Karachi by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The devices’ cutting-edge engineering enables them to inspect the bags and luggage of travelers. The CAA will receive this equipment free of charge from the British Department of Transport (DFT).

The management of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and the British Department for Transport (DfT) came to terms in February of last year to install a brand-new security system at the country’s airports.

They state “The UK High Commission is trying its best to get the machines shipped through its contractor as soon as possible to Pakistan,”.

According to sources, these devices would result in the removal of additional restrictions on hold luggage screening for planes headed to the UK as well as an increase in the effectiveness and speed of holding baggage screening.

Recent conversations between the CAA, DFT, and UK aviation have been praised as being extremely positive, which is a hint that the UK plans to allow airlines with Pakistani roots to use its airports.
