New security equipment at Kuwait Airport

May 4 - The Ministry of Interior (MoI) Undersecretary for Ports Security Affairs Lieutenant Ibrahim Al-Rushaid has announced that a new hi-tech 'CTX 9000' scanning device will be installed at the Kuwait International Airport to detect any illegal substances. The decision was made after the airport’s security officials were put on high-alert after information about a possible terrorist act was received. "As a result of this, instructions were given to intensify the search procedures for passengers without exception,” said Al-Rushaid.

The official said that such measures are necessary in light of the five new departure gates at the airport as well as an increasing number of private airlines’ operations at the airport.
