JetBlue Airways Selects Morpho's MobileTrace for Enhanced Passenger Screening
Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, announced a contract with JetBlue Airways for 14 handheld MobileTrace explosive trace detectors (ETD).
Under terms of the contract, MobileTrace will be deployed this year to meet enhanced U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) passenger screening mandates for U.S.-bound flights from select JetBlue global locations. A powerful, user-friendly handheld, MobileTrace can simultaneously detect residue from explosives and narcotics in seconds on skin, clothing, parcels, bags, cargo, vehicles and other surfaces.
"Morpho thanks JetBlue for recognizing the operational and detection capabilities of MobileTrace by selecting it to protect travelers," said Karen Bomba, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "MobileTrace reflects Morpho's commitment to developing solutions that give airlines and airports the capabilities and mobility needed to protect travelers while planning for expansion and future security mandates."
"Working with Morpho Detection has helped us upgrade our screening capabilities and maintain TSA compliance without impacting the customer experience," said Ken Maxwell, Vice President of Corporate Security, JetBlue Airways.
