I need your guys help. In my company (www.mako.co.il/news) we are making a project regarding 10 years to the 9/11 terror attack. I need to make an article regarding world's most secure airports today, a decade after the attack.

I thought about consulting the best experts i know about civil aviation - members of this forum. Putting aside TLV airport with it's controversial security method, what airports you guys would consider as the safest airports in the world today? And why? "Safe" not in the clear aviation form, but in the security point of view.

Your opinion? Thx for helping me.

I am sure some people have some good idea of why certain airports are more safe then others. But probably not info to be put on a public board or in a article. But the first thing that came to my mind after TLV was DCA. Close to the capitol, I am sure there is a lot of police activity we do not see. Besides for that I really dont know much, even if I did would not be able to tell you anyway  But I would look into some of the public info out there about DCA.

The only other airports where I've had to submit to an interview before being able to even enter the sterile area are AMS, YOW, YVR, and YYC .

I sure feel safer, but nearly missed my flights on all occasions.

Airports like IST and AMM might appear secure compared to some others: only passengers are admitted into the terminal and all bags are screen before entry. This is in addition to normal requirements on liquids, etc.

Of course, at any airport, appearances can be deceptive and there is no guarantee that the people on the monitors are actually picking anything up. Security can be affected by how alert operators are, so how long do they sit staring at the screen and how frequently they change can have an effect on the level of security.

At Australian airports there are different security procedures for domestic and international flights. Obviously passports are not required for domestic flights, although photo ID may be requested at boarding, and the restrictions on liquids that apply to international flights do not apply to domestic flights unless you are connecting from/ to an international flight.
