Before the financial crisis of 2008, the aviation industry was poised to post a global growth of 5% CAGR for passenger and cargo traffic. While the recession will definitely affect aviation industry, this impact will be offset to some degree by lower fuel prices.

Aviation Industry Terror Threats Civil aviation faces multiple, complex challenges and threats, and must adapt to their evolving nature. The greatest current threat, as demonstrated by the Heathrow plot of August 2006, reminds us that terrorism is the most prominent of these threats, and therefore must stay the focus of our counter-threat strategy.

Globalization, technological advances, the proliferation of new aviation terror technologies, and the emergence of terrorism as a global phenomenon. have enabled threats to civil aviation to extend in reach, accelerate in speed, and increase in potential impact. Aviation is a global enterprise with a distributed infrastructure and multiple access points. Successful attacks on civil aviation can inflict mass casualties and grave economic damage, and attract significant public attention because of the impact on a modern transportation system.

Intelligence on threats to civil aviation plays a critical role in assessing terrorist groups’ intentions and capabilities and requires regular updating and review to ensure that governments, the private sector, and the international community are taking appropriate countermeasures. However, even the best intelligence will not uncover every specific terrorist plot, because of terrorists’ distributed network, and their efforts at operational secrecy.

Threats focused on civil aviation can be analyzed in two ways: by originator and by targets and tactics.

There are three primary categories of threats:

  1. to and from aircraft;
  2. to the aviation infrastructure;
  3. from hostile exploitation of cargo.
Threats to and from aircraft can be disaggregated into three categories:
  • Large passenger aircraft.
  • Cargo aircraft.
  • Small aircraft, including light private and corporate aircraft, and helicopters…
