France will use body scanners at some of its airports, initially to search passengers heading to the United States, Transport Secretary Dominique Bussereau told Europe 1 radio on Friday.
France said it would tighten security measures at its airports after a failed attempt to blow up a U.S. plane heading for Detroit on Christmas day.
Bussereau said the first scanners would be used “certainly for flights to the United States and the most sensitive flights to start with” and said there may be six or seven scanners at the beginning.
A scanner will be installed at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris within the next two weeks and another at the city’s Orly airport at a later date, Eric Plaisant, director of security at France’s civil aviation authority, said.
