The state of the art, non-invasive equipment, which will go live on Saturday, can detect a potential threat in seconds and will be supported by the airport's existing security screening systems.
In a bid to safeguard privacy, the body scanner creates no images of the person being scanned, and the diagram produced is automatically deleted after clearance from a security officer.
The equipment has also been deemed safe by the UK Government whose health and safety regulators concluded that having a body scan does not pose any risk to health, Belfast International Airport confirmed.
The introduction of the new technology is expected to make the search process more efficient and less intrusive for passengers who are travelling through one of Northern Ireland's busiest airports.
Travellers will be randomly selected for scanning or on activation of the normal security checks.
John Doran, managing director of Belfast International Airport, said: "Airport security is of paramount importance and we are committed to ensuring the safety and security of the millions of passengers who use Belfast International Airport every year.
"The technology employed by the scanner we are rolling out is designed in such a way that it maintains the aviation security in line with the latest Government requirements whilst also maintaining the privacy of the passenger.
"We will be providing travellers with explanatory leaflets containing information on the scanner and the background to its introduction."
