The importance of a safe and secure aviation industry

Air transport is now one of the most popular modes of transport among passengers due to its main advantages against other modes of transport: high speed, punctuality and security.

The air passenger experience involves many requirements which countries must address relating to travel document and border management, information sharing and the identification of high-risk travellers, the screening of people and cargo for security purposes, global anti-terrorism objectives and many other inter-related priorities.

The passenger and cargo traffic movement at airports holds the key to operational efficiency, thus making it vital to ensure compliance to industry standards through the innovative operation of baggage handling and airport security.

The industry has to deal with the constant risk of criminal activity and threats to civil aviation airspace and cyberattacks designed to disrupt critical processes such as air traffic control systems, navigational aids and passenger booking and management systems.The rise in the number of terrorist attacks globally has surged the demand for advanced X-ray security screening systems. To help keep passengers safe, airports may use different kinds of screening equipment.

Common basic standards comprise:

  • screening of passengers, cabin baggage and hold baggage
  • airport security (access control, surveillance)
  • aircraft security checks and searches
  • screening of cargo and mail
  • screening of airport supplies
  • staff recruitment and training

Why is high security culture so important?

Many airports have already identified the value of a robust security culture. A strong security culture refers to a set of values, shared by everyone in an organisation, which determine how people are expected to think about and approach security.

Nowadays, IT systems specifically developed for airports use are becoming increasingly connected and take information from many different sources into a central dashboard. This is a future in which airports are smart and inter-connected, bringing together diverse technologies through the Internet of Things (IoT) to streamline operations, communications, improve collaboration between departments and increase data visibility.

For example, by using tags and sensors, an airport can quickly locate infrastructure and equipment, they can monitor the progress and location of baggage and they can track the real time location of aircraft and vehicles.

Besides, our aviation security courses provide information on legislation and strategies for addressing today’s security challenges. With aviation security courses ranging from operations to planning to management, you can find training for every step of your career.

The target audience for our aviation security courses is represented by:

• Airport managers and personnel with security responsibilities
