Aeroflot Testing New Security Measures
Russian flag carrier Aeroflot is testing a new aviation security
system that uses video cameras, X-ray machines and metal
"The system includes a number of goal-oriented programs and
comprises a set of measures, beginning from entry to the airways
terminal to boarding an aircraft," deputy head of Aeroflot's
aviation security service Azat Zaripov, in an interview with Echo
Radio in Moscow.
The system even uses psychologists to profile passengers. "On
the whole, the company runs 100-percent checks on everything which
comes on board while using technical means operating on different
principles," Zaripov said.
Aeroflot is also putting armed security agents on board some
flights, he said.
Last year, Zaripov told Echo Radio, there were 126 security
incidents on Aeroflot flights. In eleven cases, the
"trouble-makers" were refused a return flight and entered into a
database as potentially dangerous.
