Based on a first decision made in 2014 of installing the Xovis sensors in 5 airports. The project now is expanding, after AENA had the chance to test the technology. The Spanish Airport Group defines Passenger Satisfaction as their number one goal. Their policy is therefore to actively reduce the waiting time in front of the security check-points. With Xovis this goal has become realizable.
