Question for written answer P-002546-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Andreas Glück (Renew)

 Subject:  Plans for security checks at airports
 Answer in writing 

Studies have shown that security checks at airports pose a major health risk to travellers. This is due in particular to the plastic trays in which passengers have to place their cabin baggage and personal items such as mobile phones or laptops. In many cases the trays are not cleaned often enough and are dirty and, in the worst case, contaminated with bacteria and viruses. Regular cleaning and disinfection is needed.

What does the Commission know about this situation, and how will it address it?
