Airport security an incredible mess: IATA

16-Dec-2010 11:19 AM

IATA Director General and CEO Giovanni Bisignani labelled airport security systems and measures an “incredible mess” and called for an overhaul of the system and security criteria (Wall Street Journal, 15-De-2010). Mr Bisignani proposed an alternative system dividing passengers into security classes.

IATA: “The current system of putting everyone through the same procedure-taking off shoes, pulling out laptops-is an incredible mess … With today’s terror threats, we need to be able to find bad people, not bad objects,” Giovanni Bisignani, Director General and CEO.
