Full body scanners will not eliminate the terrorist threat to flying, the world’s leading airlines have warned, calling for security checks to be focused on groups of passengers perceived to present the greatest risk.
Security can only be guaranteed by making a risk assessment of people before they are even board an aircraft, said Giovanni Bisignani, director general of the International Air Transport Association.
“Instead of looking for bad things—nail clippers and rogue bottles of shampoo—security systems need to focus on finding bad people,” he said.
Mr Bisignani’s warning came as airlines face additional security demands following the unsuccessful attempt to blow up a transatlantic flight on Christmas day by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a former London University student and known Muslim extremist.
