Airport security measures remain on high red alert

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (20 October) -- A training on aircraft accident investigation and prevention was conducted by the Air Transportation Office (ATO) at its Civil Aviation Training Center in Manila last September 18 to October 13 to ensure airline and aviation safety against terrorist activities.

Cynthia Aspera, Officer-In-Charge of ATO here, said the month-long training is part of a program to intensify security measures at airport terminals to preempt and frustrate terrorist plans for an orderly and speedy flow of air traffic.

Security measures at the airport terminal are being strictly observed by the Philippine National Police (PNP) - Airport Aviation Group, ATO organic security and private guards.

"I'm asking for the consideration of the passengers and the public for the inconvenience it may bring because of the stringent safety inspection as the airport is on high red alert," said Aspera.

She also called on the cooperation of the public and the various government agencies and local government units in the aim to protect airline passengers from their departure to the point of destinations.

The government continues to intensify its anti-terror watch amidst the assessment made by Great Britain that the terror plot in the country may be in its deadly stage as authorities seized in Zamboanga City 200 kilograms of chemicals for making bombs.

"Proactive security measures are already in place in securing vital infrastructures like airports, seaports, power plants and transmission lines, and communication cell sites along with the population centers like malls, markets, and schools," said a Malacaņang statement. (PIA) [top]
