Innovation in Brazil: A workshop for developing airport security programmes
As a signatory to the International Civil Aviation Convention, Brazil must comply with the guidelines laid out by the International Civil Aviation Organization. This includes ensuring that all aerodromes in the country establish, implement and maintain an airport security programme. Historically, the process for certifying such security programmes was not only long-winded, but also led to a low approval rate. In 2019, however, representatives from the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil collaborated with airport operators to establish a workshop to streamline this process. This article describes the various ways in which this endeavour has been a resounding success.
