One-Stop Security Toolkit
One-Stop security is the concept where transfer passengers and/or hold baggage are not re-screened at transfer airports if they were adequately screened at the airport of origin.
One-stop security can eliminate duplicative efforts and resources while promoting cooperation and recognition between States. Re-screening passengers and/or bags that have been properly screened once and then stayed in a sterile environment represents additional costs and time, while not necessarily adding security value.
This toolkit provides airports and stakeholders with the following benefits:
- Cost savings or re-allocation of resources due to no longer re-screening transfer passengers or baggage
- Improved passenger experience, quicker and hassle-free connections
- Competitive advantages for hubs, possible lower MCT
