Since the 1960s, civil aviation has been a strategic target for terrorist organization operations.
In addition to preparing for the relatively high level threat it entails, aviation security also requires professionalism and great sensitivity. An international airport is a public facility that serves tens of thousands of passengers each day and offers a broad variety of dynamic activities carried out in a civilian environment and according to precise and binding time tables. Airlines are committed to providing quality service to their customers, including on time service and operational efficiency.

The aim of the security system is to allow the airport and airliners to maintain their daily activity routine, to transport passengers and cargo to their destinations and to provide their customers with the highest level of service. 

Skillfully executed and managed security, tailored to the special needs of a civilian airport and airline, will ensure effective utilization of resources and budgets and fit in optimally with the daily activities of both airport and airlines.
