The Realities of Aviation Security

“THE CURRENT THREAT AND RISK ENVIRONMENT DEMANDS THAT AVIATION SECURITY REMAIN AMONG THE HIGHEST PRIORITIES FOR STATES AND THE GLOBAL INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.”
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 2017 


This stark reminder comes as the aviation industry moves into an era of growing demand for air travel and the increased movement of cargo and goods across interdependent just-in-time and just-enough international supply chains. 

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), passenger traffic will nearly double by 2036, and growth across all sectors of the industry continues commensurate with the robust global economy (International Air Transport Association (IATA) 2017) and (Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 2018). 

Given this immense growth, airports, commercial carriers, business and general aviation, and cargo operators have to innovate and find efficiencies to stay competitive. 

These innovations are often measured through improved passenger experience, ‘light touch’ security screening and automation, expanded route and destination offerings, and minimising delays and disruption. 

This value-add and competitive approach, if not managed well, may result in increased vulnerabilities and potentially catastrophic outcomes for the aviation industry. 

The industry must build capability and capacity across the sector to prevent disruption from motivated, capable, and well-resourced antagonists. 

Business decisions, strategic planning, and aviation operations must consider the global, regional, and local security environment; and, through the development of both public and private partnerships, to identify and embed security best practices. 

No single entity is robust enough to mitigate all the risks facing the aviation sector. A multilateral approach is required, leveraging the expertise and resources from: 
• governmental entities and regulators, 
• trade associations, 
• operators, and 
• industry enablers within the private sector.
