SCHIPHOL - Schiphol will introduce a new security scan for passengers next week. Frisking for prohibited items will no longer be necessary as a result, the airport announced on Wednesday.

Schiphol has been conducting trials with the new scan on flight attendants and pilots since last year. Early on there was opposition to the device because it scans through the individual's clothes, but in practice there were few objections.

Those using the scan prefer it to manual frisking.
