Since the devastating attack on Brussels, airports all around the world have begun to beef up their security. Australian Prime Minister blamed the attacks on Europe’s porous borders and lax security, further stating that Australian domestic security is much stronger than Europe. Asian airports, like the ones in South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand and India are now deploying further security personnel to major hubs around their cities. New measures taken include increased checking, patrols around the perimeter as well as inside. Since the attack on Brussels India has begun to go though most the luggage and bags that is passing through its terminal, leaving nothing to chance. London, Paris and Frankfurt responded by increasing its security patrols around and in the airport. In the US, the National Guard was deployed to major airports to keep a look out over things.
Airports have been attacked in the past, as they are a major public spot; Matthew Finn, managing director of Augmentiq says that he is perplexed why security was not beefed up ages ago after the attack on Moscow’s Domodedovo airport in 20011, where 37 people were killed.
