CISF two day international aviation security seminar ends

New Delhi: The government said on Wednesday that it is planning for next 15 years and the kind of investments which are needed for security and technology up-gradation for the expected one billion air trips from the 200 airports in the country by 2035.

Addressing the aviation security experts of 18 countries at International Aviation Security Seminar, MoS civil aviation Jayant Sinha said that there is a need for unified command across all airports, use of more technologies like Digi Yatra, artificial intelligence and cost-effectiveness of the security solutions.

CISF, which organised the two-day seminar, said that it is examining the use of latest 3D CT scanning technology that will save passengers from the hassle of taking out their laptops and electronic gadgets from bags at airports.

The technology is currently being tested at Amsterdam and London airports and CISF is mulling to bring it to India.

TOI had first reported that CISF had plans to explore such a technology.

At present, airline passengers in India are required to take out their laptops and other electronic gadgets from their cabin baggage and place them separately in the x-ray scanner when they get themselves frisked.
