The ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP) provides a useful framework to better align national aviation security measures with agreed global standards.

Government & industry collaboration key to successful implementation Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) has welcomed the development of the Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP) by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) which provides a roadmap for implementation of globally agreed standards and recommended practices relating to aviation security.

AAPA Director General Mr. Andrew Herdman joined aviation security experts gathered at the 26th IATA AVSEC World conference in Abu Dhabi recently to discuss the latest developments.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Herdman noted that “Aviation security is a collective global responsibility. We need to promote closer collaboration amongst governments working together with the industry as trusted partners in the development and implementation of effective aviation security measures. Good security is all about comprehensive threat assessment and balanced risk management, not the elimination of every conceivable risk. We should always aim to strike a proper balance between passenger facilitation and necessary aviation security measures.”

Mr. Herdman concluded, “The ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP) provides a useful framework to better align national aviation security measures with agreed global standards. Airlines remain fully committed to working closely with government security agencies, airports and other stakeholders to ensure that air travel remains safe, secure and convenient.”
