“One stop security” system for US, Europe, Canada airports

A “one stop security” system should be pursued by airports throughout the US, Europe and Canada, according to a meeting hosted by the Airports Council International (ACI).

The meeting said such a system would deliver better quality service to passengers whilst maintaining security, Airwise.com reported.

Airport directors said they would work closely with the US Transportation Security Administration, the European Commission and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority on the matter.

"Building upon the existing level of coordination between the US, Canada and the EU is essential as we move forward to design the future aviation security system, which must be effective and efficient, yet sustainable over the long term," chairman of ACI North America, Hardy Acree, said.

"We are calling on the EU and US to further step up their cooperation. We are calling upon them to work in a concerted and active way on designing the aviation security system of tomorrow,” president of ACI Europe, Ad Rutten, said.

"The way forward is clear: improve the effectiveness of aviation security by moving from almost exclusive focus on detection to better use of intelligence and information in the whole passenger security process."

The meeting was of the joint board of directors of the North American and European regions of the council and was also attended by Canadian airport directors and transport security officials from the three regions.
