The dedicated inspection counter, on the 2nd floor of AAT Terminal 2, means that both physical and document checks are performed at a single location.
In tandem with the inspection counter, an advance booking service has been launched for customers and cargo agents. Booking confirmation by AAT will be given within two hours and all the bookings will be prioritised for handling.
Khaw Hock Eng, general manager of AAT, said: "This dedicated inspection counter for dangerous goods and Lithium batteries, together with an advance booking service, are important services in response to the increasing global security concern and air logistics needs."
