Industry experts Cyril Dujardin, CEO, Morpho Detection, and Oren Sapir, President & CEO, ICTS Europe, share with Airport Business a professional perspective on the part that technology plays in helping airports to confront the challenges, seize the opportunities and deliver an expedited experience in security.
As Europe’s aviation security leaders meet at the Security and Border Control Summit in Paris this November, the complex technological, regulatory and competitive challenges facing the industry need open and honest dialogue if passenger experience is to remain intact.
With burgeoning passenger traffic, airports are being continuously challenged to find the right balance between security, cost and efficiency. The greatest challenge of all is to deliver a security experience that is convenient and comfortable for the passenger.
Over the last decade, airports have made a tremendous leap into the evolving age of technology.
In light of the first phase of new rules on LAGs (liquids, aerosols and gels), which entered into force on 31 January, many progressive European airports have deployed combinations of screening technology which meet both current requirements at low false alarm rates but also allow for expansion of capacity as further liquid restrictions are lifted.
