Commission considers making one-stop airport security mandatory for intra-EU transfers.
Brussels said existing EU law already insisted on a high level of security standards and also allowed for governments to sometimes "cater for the consequences of higher security risks".
Meanwhile, the Commission will also consider requiring more transparency on the levying of security charges by airports on users and consumers. "There have been concerns over whether [fees] correspond to the actual security charge levied on the airline," said the report. And although security charges must be highlighted separately on airfares under EU law, bodies levying these fees or taxes should "regularly provide operators with information on the components used to calculate" them, stressed Brussels.
