It was recently declared that a student admitted falsely claiming that a bomb was apparently on a Turkish- bound flight from Gatwick airport. The accusation was made by Muhammet Demir, a 20 year old who warned police on the 9th December, before the plane was due to take off.
The plane and the 170 passengers within it were forced to a stand-still where they were greeted by armed police, before it was given the obvious all clear. The hoax resulted in the flight being delayed by 3 hours, and the 20 year old student was arrested trying to flee the country through an attempt to board a plane from Luton Airport. Not only did the hoax result in time and money being wasted, but also the policed stated that it delayed them from attending genuine emergencies.
Premium security within an Airport is crucial, and passengers should deserve to feel safe and comfortable before, during, and after their journey with the service. This is why Alpha 1 is the ideal connection, no matter the size of the airport. Whether you are looking for retail security for off duty, or manned guarding to ensure tight protection, Alpha 1 can accommodate these needs. Risk runs high in airports, hence why we offer a spectrum of services that can be tweaked to your preference. Perhaps a visible deterrent in the form of our mobile patrol security may be the external security solution you’ve been looking for, or alternatively our manned guarding or close pretention service would prove effective internally. With an extra security connection on board, tension within airports will inevitably ease.
