Future Screening for Aviation and Borders competition will bring welcome innovation

Welcoming the Government’s Future Screening for Aviation and Borders competition that is seeking innovative solutions to security screening, Chief Executive of the Airport Operators Association Karen Dee said:

“UK aviation is rightly renowned for our excellent passenger experience and our high levels of safety and security. The CAA’s passenger survey shows there are high levels of satisfaction with aviation security screening in the UK, yet it remains one of the top reasons people say flying can be a hassle.

“This competition is a welcome opportunity to address that, while ensuring UK aviation security remains world-class and continuously responds to the ever-evolving threat. We look forward to seeing the innovation this will encourage and how we can adapt it to our airports, ensuring UK airports remain best-in-class operators.”
