MAGO, the digital division of Manchester Airport Group, has introduced a new technology to reduce queuing by giving passengers the option to pre-book a timeslot at security.
Brad Miller, Chief Operating Officer at Manchester Airport, said: "Safety and security will also be the first priority and, at the same time, Covid-19 will undoubtedly reshape the airport experience. We are exploring every innovation and technology that can help us to adapt to the new world, protect public health and restore confidence in air travel.
"This new measure will allow us to manage our security process more efficiently in these challenging times, providing a better and more comfortable experience for passengers.
"It is the latest in a series of measures introduced by MAG to make travel safer during the pandemic, which includes asking passengers and colleagues to wear face coverings and piloting temperature screening technologies."
The technology will be rolled out across Manchester Airport Group's other operations at London Stanstead and East Midlands if the trial proves to be successful.
