Alongside safety, security is airlines’ top priority. A4E members are working hand in hand with the European institutions to further improve aviation security in the European Union, from contributing to public consultations to supporting the review of existing legislation.
The EU already has a very strong level of aviation security measures in place, complemented by a positive security culture within the aviation industry as a whole. A4E airlines support the EU’s aviation security framework in both its strategic foresight and tactical implementation.
