Brussels Airport has named G4S and ICTS as its security partners for 2018 following a competitive European tender process. G4S will be responsible for the security screening of passengers, staff and baggage at the airport, while ICTS will take care of access control of staff, visitors and vehicles, with contracts running from three years and starting in February.
Together, the two companies will employ over 1,000 full-time members of staff at the airport. G4S has been taking care of airport security since 2011 and by winning the tender, its collaboration with the airport operator is extended. Security company ICTS is already a trusted partner for several airline companies, and will add access control to its tasks as of February 2018.
Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company, commented, “Security is a top priority for Brussels Airport. Together with our partners G4S and ICTS, we pursue the common aim of guaranteeing the highest security level without compromising passenger experience and the efficiency of airport operations.”
Both contracts are renewable for up to three years.
