JAL system makes air travel easier and enables you to keep laptops, liquids in bag for security check

Taking your laptop with you on an airplane flight looks like it must be a wonderful combination of convenient technologies, allowing you to soar through the air while still making progress on a piece project, letting your creative writing juices flow. After all, that flight shall be preceded by the trouble of getting to dig your laptop out of your carry-on bag, take it out of its case, and pass the device through the pre-flight security check, then reverse the entire process once the airport staff gives you the OK.

There’s now a way around that inconvenience though, due to JAL. The airline has developed a brand new X-ray CT inspection system that it calls JAL Smart Security which enables you to keep your laptop inside your carry-on during inspection, and which also utilize a couple of other clever ideas to get you to the boarding gate as easily and stress-free as possible.

The layout is formed like a letter J, with three spots firstly where passengers can place a tray for his or her carry-on and jacket. Along with your laptop, you may as well leave any allowable liquid-containing bottles inside your bag as well. Slide the tray forward (ensuring it’s widthwise) onto the rollers, and it’ll make its way down the road to the inspection point.


The curved starting section is designed that technique to prevent bottlenecks by allowing whoever’s tray is filled first to then go through the metal detector. Assuming there are not any problems, you then retrieve your belongings on the opposite side and will be in your way, all without having to repack your laptop or liquids.


Tokyo’s Haneda is the primary airport where JAL is using the system, and because of an expansion of this system this month there are actually a dozen Smart Security lines in Terminal 1 (4 in South Wing Security Checkpoint B, three at South Wing Checkpoints C and North Wing Checkpoint F, and two at North Wing Checkpoint E). Currently, they’re only available to be used with domestic flights, but hopefully the system will run easily enough that it may possibly be expanded to other airports and international lines in the long run.
