Pakistan’s Airport Staff to Receive Training from British Institute


KARACHI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan has recently celebrated a significant advancement in airport security and staff training, facilitated by a collaborative effort with the British Department of Transport.

In a move aimed at bolstering the capabilities of airport personnel, the British Department of Transport held specialized training sessions that focused primarily on X-ray screening certification.

This comprehensive training program was designed to elevate the standards of security checks at airports and ensure a higher level of proficiency among the staff involved in these critical operations.

The training was not limited to the personnel of the CAA but was also extended to include members from various key departments such as Customs, the Airport Security Force (ASF), and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). The diverse participation underscores the integrated approach towards enhancing the security framework at Pakistan’s airports.

A pivotal moment in this initiative was the certification ceremony, where participants who successfully completed the Image Recognition Computer-Based Training were officially recognized.

This ceremony was not just a formality but a significant acknowledgment of the staff’s enhanced capabilities in managing sophisticated security technology.

Dr. Jovital, Chief of Security and Justice at the British High Commission, attended the event as the chief guest, highlighting the importance of the training and the strong bilateral ties between the two nations in areas of critical infrastructure security.

In addition to providing expert training, the British institute contributed significantly by supplying state-of-the-art hardware and software, crucial for the modernization and enhancement of security measures at the airports. This generous provision not only aids in immediate security needs but also sets a foundation for ongoing technological upgrades.

Shahid Qadir, the Director of Security at CAA, expressed profound gratitude towards the British institute for their support. He noted that the combination of advanced training and the latest equipment greatly enriches the overall security posture of Pakistan’s airports.

Qadir’s acknowledgment reflects a common sentiment among the staff, emphasizing the value of international cooperation in raising operational standards and ensuring safety.

This initiative represents a key milestone in Pakistan’s commitment to maintaining global standards in aviation security, supported by international collaboration and expertise.

As these trained personnel begin to implement their new skills and tools, the impact of this training is expected to resonate through improved security measures and enhanced safety for travelers and staff alike.
