L3 MacDonald Humfrey Automation helps airports plan their operations and critical infrastructure, providing guidance on the optimum installation of our Mach-SmartLane® lanes and integration with scanners and X-ray equipment. Our unique solutions are designed to improve passenger flow and all the cost benefits this can bring, as well as improvements to security and passenger satisfaction rates.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects passenger demand to double over the next 20 years from 3.8 billion travellers in 2016 to 7.2 billion passengers in 2035. This growth is putting great pressure on airport infrastructure and is an increasing challenge for airports with a fixed footprint and no freely available capital expenditure to build additional capacity. We provide the solutions to these capacity issues.

We are approved suppliers and have partnerships with many of the world’s government bodies and authorities in air travel, including the TSA, CATSA, Avinor and the DfT.
