industry needs to be sure that this money is being well spent. The respective responsibilities of governments and industry for the cost of security procedures also needs to be better understood.
“The terrible shooting at Los Angeles International Airport is a reminder that aviation security is always going to be tested. It is a sad reality of modern life that evil and disturbed individuals often target public spaces, including airports, to commit atrocities. Regulators have the difficult task of balancing security with the needs of modern society for mobility. The common vision among industry and regulators is data-driven, risk-based and outcome-focused security delivered in partnership with industry and to harmonised global standards. The challenge is to work together to deliver it while staying one step ahead of those who would choose to do our industry harm,” said Tyler.
