MOSCOW, May 16 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia has joined countries notorious for the biggest number of air disasters, said merited pilot of the Soviet Union Oleg Smirnov, who chairs a Civil Aviation Commission of the Public Council of the Federal Service for Supervision of Transport. Oleg Smirnov spoke at the First international conference «Aviation Security- 2012" on Wednesday.
A problem of ensuring safety of flights arouses big concern among Russian experts, Smirnov said. According to Smirnov's data, Russia accounts for five percent in the overall volume of world passenger transportations, but its share in the statistics of world air disasters makes up 20 percent.
As for aviation security, (prevention of terrorist acts at airports, unauthorized interference in the work of avia personnel) Smirnov said that " several structures- airlines' security services, airports' security services, Transport Ministry security service, experts of the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security service have been working in this field, but there is no proper coordination between them".
Measures to detect potential criminals should be taken long before they arrive at airports or go aboard, participants in the conference underlined. Representatives of security services are offered big possibilities here, in particular, a possibility to check a passenger’s personal record, passport data and information from the data base of law enforcement bodies, the conference was told.
Chief Manager of SITA International Company in Russia and the CIS Vladimir Bordanenko focused on this problem in his report he delivered at the conference. SITA is a world leader in the field of informational and telecommunication technologies for the air transportation industry.
