ACI and IATA collaborate to deliver smart security

It was announced jointly from respective headquarters in Geneva and Montreal in mid-December that Airports Council International (ACI) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding jointly to develop Smart Security (SmartS).

With the MoU, ACI and IATA can better align their resources and expertise to improve the journey from curb to boarding. Passengers will be able to proceed
through security checkpoints with minimal inconvenience, security resources are allocated based on risk, and airport facilities are optimized.
