EU to host aviation security meeting

New security measures for all airports ruled out
Next week, European Union aviation security experts will meet to discuss ways of strengthening airport security following Tuesday’s attacks in Brussels, which killed at least 31 people, 10 of them at Zaventem Airport.
The explosions occurred in the check-in areas, which the attackers were able to access without having to pass any security checks.
The European Commission will host the meeting of security experts from the EU’s 28 states on March 31. A meeting of land transport security experts will take place on April 11. There is currently no defined agenda, but an official ruled out any blanket security measures, such as scanners at all airport entrances.
“Security is a national prerogative,” an official said. “The Commission will not impose on a small airport in Finland the same security measures that may be required for major hubs such as Brussels or Paris.”
