IATA says BAA must plan better for emergency security.


The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has said that the British airports operator BAA Plc has to plan for emergency security checks.

IATA said that BAA must make sure that it has adequate contingency plans in place to deal with emergency security checks. The operator has to avoid repeating the chaos at London's Heathrow Airport after the security alert last week.

Additionally, IATA also thinks that BAA should have asked for assistance from national security authorities or the military, Reuters reported.
