ERA’s Current Position

The events of 9/11 led to a huge increase in the level and therefore cost of security, both on the ground and in-flight. Consequently, the financing of new measures was on the policy agenda of the European Union. However the new Parliament elected in 2014 withdrew the policy discussions regarding funding and will leave this to individual member states.

Update

Latest update 24/06/2019: The report on the latest (97th) meeting held in Brussels on 13 June 2019 is now available to view in the downloads section on this page. 

The meeting agenda included an update on the latest cyber security activity, including a workshop planned for early July that will aim to provide guidance concerning a current EASA Notice of Proposed Amendment in relation to IT security. 

Of particular interest was an overview of a new low-cost electronic detection system for cabin baggage which is available as an option to be incorporated into smaller airports.

Whilst on this subject, the meeting learned how Artificial Intelligence is also being developed as a future means of detection that is fast approaching, with current tests demonstrating how this method of detection is out-performing the human operators.
