Finally I could hear it in the news this morning that there are plans to introduce security checks before entering aiport terminals. That is the only place where I’m always afraid. If you’ve ever experienced a normal check-in during peak time at Heathrow for example, you know what I’m talking about. Around 200 check-in counters in a hall, at least 10 passengers per counter plus relatives. It means a few thousand people in one closed space. Ideal place for blowing up a bomb. Why would any terrorist take the risk and try to smuggle something through security, when there’s such a good opportunity for him? Let’s face it, this is a perfect security hole. The only city where I could see security guards everywhere around the place even outside the terminals is Tel Aviv. Take their example, they must be perfect in security. For them it’s really a matter of life or death. Or isn’t it so everywhere?
I hope this weekend’s events will wake aiport security officials up everywhere in the world and they will realize the importance of security checks outside and at the entrance of airport terminal buildings.
