Starting this week, Munich Airport’s operating authority has begun the trial use of a full body scanner at the additional security check-point that US bound passengers must pass through prior to boarding their Lufthansa flights to the States.   This is referring to the check-point located in terminal 2, on the H-North level.

As part of the trial, passengers will have the ability to ‘opt out’ of the full body scan and be subject to the normal pat down procedure that is currently in place.   I’m not aware of the length of trial, however the airport authority will use this test to determine if there is long term viability for the use of full body scanners.

This is the first time that ‘MUC’ has installed a full body scanner as part of their passenger screening procedures.
