Security in the Americas

We work with governments, regulatory authorities, and other organizations in the Americas to implement a passenger security process that is based on a coherent regulatory framework and enhanced passenger facilitation.

The Smart Security project has been supported by 12 civil aviation authorities in the region. The vision is for a hassle free security experience made possible through advanced technology and with the effective use of passenger information which is moving us away from today’s one-size-fits all approach.

IATA is also working with COPA , TACA and various civil aviation authorities to develop pilot programs for the first one-stop security schemes outside of Europe. Mutual recognition of standards allows connecting passengers and baggage to forego re-screening, provided they have arrived from a secure location with equivalent security standards.
