Shannon Airport has expanded its airport security team to bolster its commitment to improving passenger flows and enhancing the airport experience for visitors, particularly during the busy summer months.

A total of nine new recruits have received their official certificates after completing an intense training course in airport security.

The new Airport Screening Unit (ASU) officers have undergone training, which includes how to operate the airport’s multimillion euro state-of-the-art 3D x-ray screening system.
