Case study: How Sydney Airport is ensuring the safety and security of airport users
As Australia’s primary gateway, handling over 40% of all international and 44% of all domestic and regional passengers within Australia – and an essential part of the global transport network, connecting Sydney to 44 international, 22 interstate and 22 regional destinations –, ensuring the safety and security of airport users is a key priority for Sydney Airport.
From providing essential security infrastructure and a comprehensive safety management system to protecting the
airspace, ensuring Sydney Airport is a safe and secure operating environment is a top priority. After measuring and setting targets, Sydney Airport took action to implement a security management system, provide “security with service”, undertake emergency planning – Sydney Airport maintains an Airport Emergency Plan (AEP) in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation and Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority regulations and standards –, introduce a revised Safety Management System (SMS) and, also, protect passengers and airline staff on board aircraft from the safety risk posed by wildlife strikes.
