The chairman of British Airways has attacked ‘completely redundant’ airport checks and said the UK should stop bowing to US demands for increased security.

Martin Broughton said people should not be forced to take off their shoes and have their laptops checked separately in security lines.

He also said there was no need to ‘kowtow to the Americans every time they wanted something done’, especially when this involved checks the US did not impose on its own domestic routes.

The US stepped up security in January in the wake of an alleged bomb plot.

It introduced tougher screening rules, including body pat-down searches and carry-on baggage checks, for passengers arriving from 14 nations which the authorities consider a security risk.
