Smart Security

Formerly known as ACI "Better Security" and IATA "Checkpoint of the Future", Smart Security is now a joint program between ACI and IATA. This initiative envisions to provide to Airports a continuous journey from curb to airside, where passengers proceed through security with minimal inconvenience, where security resources are allocated based on risk, and where airport facilities can be optimized.

The initiative will facilitate to Airports the implementation of pratices for the introduction of risk-based security concepts, advanced screening technologies, and process innovation.

With these elements in combination, Smart Security seeks to deliver:

  • Strengthened security –  Focus resources based on risk, increase unpredictability, make better use of existing technologies, and introduce new technologies with advanced capabilities as they become available
  • Increased operational efficiency –  Increase throughput, optimize asset utilization, reduce cost per passenger, and maximize space and staff resources.
  • Improved passenger experience –  Reduce queues and waiting times and use technology for less intrusive and time consuming security screening.
