Title

Security and hindrance at airports


Abstract

The significant growth of the economy in a number of countries, together with the liberalisation of civil air transport now represents a significant impulse for the development of tourism, practically-oriented almost in all countries of the world. This trend is confirmed by the world WTO, ICAO and IATA statistics. The growth of air transport brings the need to ensure the fast and comfortable passenger and their baggage check-in with high security level fulfilment. In the checking process, with permanently growing volume of passengers, a critical place appears for which an optimal solution is currently intensively being searched at different levels. In this article there are analyzed options of selected types of contemporary and prospective technical equipment which are used during security checks, in the process of passengers check-in at the airport. The aim of this discussion is focusing on the choice of technology, suitable for the analysis of passengers´ behaviour, and evaluating options for the detection of potential dangerous security risks.
