Abstract

The high profile of aviation has made it an attractive target to terrorist activities. The September 11 terrorist attack and subsequent failed terrorist attacks made safety and security top priorities for the aviation industry. A review of the current practice in airport security conducted by the author found that it was reactive, expensive and inefficient in some areas based on a “one-size-fits-all” principle. The forecast of a new approach to airport security conducted in this study predicted that by 2020-2030 airport security will be proactive and based on passenger differentiation.
