Fever Screening Trials at Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Westminster Group Plc (AIM: WSG), a leading supplier of managed services and technology-based security solutions worldwide, is pleased to announce that it has conducted a successful trial of its fever screening solutions in association with Menzies Aviation and their client, Air France, at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
Using the Westminster fever screening solution, Menzies Aviation will continue to conduct operational trials with Air France and other clients' flights' over the coming weeks in order to fine tune an effective delivery to this added layer of safety and security. Feedback from the first live trial was extremely positive with all passengers screened as they presented their boarding passes at the departure gate. The trial at Stockholm Arlanda Airport is Westminster's first trial at a Scandinavian airport as it looks to widen its client database and airport presence.
Commenting on the trial Westminster's General Manager, Hamish Russell, said:
"Working with Menzies Aviation on the trial has been excellent. We have worked hard in order to supply them with the correct solution for their fever screening requirements that is fit for purpose and has the least impact on an already complex procedure, and within the required time frame. I need to thank all those involved at Menzies Aviation both in the UK and their team in Sweden for their efforts.
"Westminster's fever screening solutions have been supplied to numerous industry sectors to detect, mitigate and defeat the spread of COVID-19. Westminster continues to add to its fever screening offering ensuring products are adaptable, cost effective and can be implemented and upgraded into existing processes or technology."
