The European Council and Parliament have agreed on new air transport industry security measures, according to council president Flemming Hansen. All staff and items entering airport secure areas must be screened, aircraft security on the ground is to be improved, and arriving and departing passengers in secure areas are to be kept separate. The council has agreed that random, unannounced security inspections may take place, and inspectors from one country may be part of a team that inspects airports in another.
