“Following on from the successful award of the hold baggage screening equipment last year, we are proud to be continuing this relationship with Kuwait International Airport, providing them with best-in-class screening equipment for their new terminal. The solutions that they have selected are the most technically advanced and are being installed in some of the biggest airports across the globe.”
