Dubai Airshow 2015 conference programme opens with incisive discussion on the need to bring passengers on board

Industry experts and thought leaders in the field of security addressed key issues currently affecting the aviation sector on day one of the Dubai Airshow as it kicked off its 2015 edition with a conference dedicated to safety and security.

According to the official website of Dubai Airshow, the Airport Safety & Security Conference, one of the new conferences added to the Dubai Airshow for 2015 covered a diverse agenda covering standardization requirements, challenges in cargo and logistics, cyber terrorism and regulatory frameworks.

Peter Kirk, Deputy Director and Head of Aviation Security, UK Civil Aviation Authority, led a thought-provoking session on the evolution of aviation security regulation, at which he called for increased transparency and dialogue with the general public.

He argued that the industry is focused on telling passengers what it wants them to do, but less forthcoming when explaining why. This also raised the issue of industry intelligence.

Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of Dubai Airshow organisers F&E Aerospace, added. "The addition of the Airport Safety and Security Conference is one of the new additions to the Dubai Airshow for 2015, increasing its representation of all aspects of the aerospace industry."
