Erick Bouraï, head of aviation security policy at Aéroports de Paris, will return to Passenger Terminal Conference this year to discuss the pros and cons of technology in improving airport security.
In his presentation Aviation security – can technology alone be the solution? at 2:25pm on Tuesday, March 15, Bouraï will look at how passenger screening checkpoint design can be influenced by technology and the role humans will play in the future of airport security.
“In today’s airports, the basic design and rationale of the passenger screening checkpoint is by and large influenced by concepts going back to the 1960s and 1970s,” said Bouraï.
“However, there has been a dramatic shift in passengers’ and airlines’ needs since then. Airports have been unstinting in their efforts to maintain security operations at the highest level while at the same time striving to address their clients’ needs, as well as adapting their resources and know-how to an evolving threat environment.
“It is time for us to re-think the process, but what should be its main component? Technology is useful but humans must be the core element.”
As part of the same Aviation & Border Security, Control & Facilitation session, Bouraï, who is chairman of the ACI Europe Aviation Security Committee, will be joined by a host of security experts from aviation authorities, airports and global carriers, as well as leading security consultants.
