Airport Security: Looking at terrorist attacks outside the civil aviation industry 

Security is about prevention. Our training encourages open dialogue and a proactive approach to security operations at all levels.

Can civil aviation learn from terrorist attacks carried out on the ground? In this presentation we compare the 2012 Bangkok explosions with the 1988 Pan Am flight 103 attack to expose possible vulnerabilities in today’s aircraft and airport security measures.

Have a look and tell us what you think.
