0 45

The Office for Transportation Security has replaced the non-operational x-ray machines at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 for more efficient security screening.

OTS Administrator Ma. O Aplasca oversaw the replacement of the machines and said the security screening process must be rigid but also convenient.

“Many of our kababayans have seen security as an arduous process to comply, and in some instances, we receive complaints on queuing. That is why my guidance is: to make it rigid, while at the same time convenient for them. And to do that, we must ensure that our tools and equipment in conducting screening are efficiently working according to its purpose, complemented by highly trained security screening officers,” Aplasca said.

He also said major changes in the security screening layout would be instituted to ensure more efficient and effective security processes for passengers and their luggage, and for the airport.
