    Amsterdam Schiphol Airport reported (04-Sep-2017) its ‘small bags only’ security lanes trial saw 95% of passengers wait between zero and 10 minutes. As previously reported by CAPA, Schiphol trialled a dedicated security lane for passengers with no baggage or small bags during Jul/Aug-2017. Additionally, 15% to 20% more passengers passed through the ‘small bags only’ security lanes compared to regular security lanes. Schiphol subsequently extended the service up to and including the autumn holiday period. [more – original PR – English/Dutch]
