The Importance of Security Checkpoints

Airport security refers to the techniques and methods used in protecting passengers, staff, and planes, which use the airports from accidental/malicious harm, crime and other threats.

Large numbers of people pass through airports every day. This presents potential targets for terrorism and forms of crime because of the number of people located in a particular location. Similarly, the high concentration of people on large airliners, the potential high death rate with attacks on aircraft, and the ability to use a hijacked air-plane as a lethal weapon may provide an alluring target for terrorism, whether or not they succeed due their high profile nature following the various attacks and attempts around the globe in recent years.

Airport security attempts to prevent any threat on potentially dangerous situations from arising or entering the country.If airport security does succeed in this, then the chances of any dangerous situations, illegal items or threats entering the aircraft, country or airport are greatly reduced. As such, airport security serves several purposes: To protect the airport and country from any threatening event, to reassure the travelling public that they are safe and to protect the country and their people.
