Security is the solution not the problem at region's airports
Security is now part of the solution, not just part of the problem in global airport management says Brig. Pilot Ahmed bin Thani, head of airports security in Dubai, ahead of the region's Airport Show this month.
"In today's complex global environment, establishing and maintaining safety and security throughout the airport is the single most important management priority. Dubai Airports have proved to be successful in utilising the best of technology that enhanced its performance and capabilities."
Spending on the region's airports is set to reach AED212 million by 2015 and a key part of that spend will be on security. H E Mohammed Ahli, director general of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), said: "No matter how sleek and contemporary its architecture and design, an airport is always going to be judged by its security, service standards and the capability to handle peak periods and irregular operations.
"For the airport operators, it's crucial to alleviate these concerns by adopting innovative technology. Airports are seeking to improve security, find new ways of streamlining efficiencies, creating new loyalty solutions and offering enhanced services."
Airport Show 2012 will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman of Dubai Airports and Chairman of Emirates Airline and Group. Supported by leading international industry associations and local government authorities, it will be held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center (DICEC) from May 22 to 24 with the participation of over 178 exhibitors and thousands of visitors from over 60 countries.
