AOA comments on NGSC alleviations

Commenting on the government’s decision to offer alleviations to airports implementing Next Generation Security Checkpoints, chief executive of the Airport Operators Association, the trade body for UK airports, Karen Dee, said:

“Airports are making excellent progress in delivering these multimillion-pound investment programmes, which will ensure the UK remains at the forefront of aviation security in the years ahead.

“As with any programme of this complexity, there are significant challenges, and we are happy the government has recognised these and agreed to extend timeframes for delivery where necessary.

“By adopting this approach, airports can ensure that they are ready to welcome passengers over the upcoming holiday periods and that their journeys are safe, secure and smooth as we make this transition.”
