Extra security screening at Nordic airports

Checks carried out using explosive trace detector
Common rules for the detection of explosive materials will be introduced at airports in the European Union on March 1, including those in Scandinavia. This means that random checks will be carried out on passengers’ hand luggage during the usual security screening.
The checks will be carried out using an explosive trace detector. Passengers, who will be chosen randomly, should place their bags on a table for a sample to be taken using the detector, which is also known as a sniffer.
The checks are fast, the objective being to have as little an impact on the passenger flow as possible. Explosive trace detector checks are already carried out at airports in both the UK and the US.
