ABSTRACT

Aviation Security: Additional Actions Needed to Meet Domestic and International Challenges, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 4MB]

In the aftermath of the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has taken many steps to strengthen security at U.S. airports; however, many questions about domestic and international aviation security remain unanswered. This report examines in detail FAA's efforts to (1) assess, in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the security of domestic airports; (2) determine whether a similar level of protection exists for U.S. citizens traveling on foreign airlines; and (3) improve security for mail and cargo.
