STEPS TO AVERT DISASTER


Further terrorist attacks in the world of aviation are likely for the foreseeable future, according to experts at a recent security summit. It means effective responses are more vital than ever


WORDS EDWARD ROBERTSON


O


ne of the saddest legacies of 2016 was a rise in the number of attacks on the public across


Europe by Islamist terrorists, many of whom claimed allegiance to Isis. While each attack was different from


the last, airports were a key target on two occasions and led to headlines around the world. First Brussels Airport came under attack in March as part of a wider attack on the city. A total of 14 of the 32 killed lost their lives at the Belgian airport.


Gunmen also struck in June at


Istanbul Ataturk Airport, killing 45 at the international terminal before they were shot and killed by Turkish police. Although both facilities are back up and running now, not every airport is so lucky in the wake of an attack. Sharm el Sheikh


International Airport remains closed to British and Russian aviation following the bombing of a Russian Metrojet aircraft in October 2015. The ban has played havoc with both the airport and the country’s tourism industry. Worryingly, terrorism experts speaking


at the Airports Council International (ACI) Europe & Asia-Pacific Security and Crisis Management Special Summit believe the targeting of aircraft and particularly airports is now a well-established tactic. As a result, they warned delegates at the November event to expect further attacks for the foreseeable future. University of East London head of criminology and director of terrorism studies Professor Andrew Silke said the tactic was well ingrained and has proven to be an effective shock tactic.
