The on-site exercise took place at Muscat International Airport. Prior to search exercises being carried out, it included group familiarisation of the entirety of aircraft interiors, reminders of the importance of instant emergency response, leadership and the allocation of individual role. The results of the searches were then analysed during a post-exercise briefing, before a summary of the course content was provided to delegates.
Commenting on the course, Lt. Col. (Rtd) Vice President Security at Oman Air said:
“Oman Air is in agreement with Checkport for security training on annual basis depending on Oman Air’s request. The field of the training varies in accordance to Oman Air’s requirement within the “Aviation Security” discipline We intend to acquire further trainings for our team on various aspects of security throughout this venture with Checkport.
“There are similar security trainings conducted for the team along with various stakeholders.”
Feedback from delegates was extremely positive and Oman Air’s Security Department declared itself confident that the training will make a valuable contribution to safeguarding passengers and aircraft. Whilst the measures detailed during the training are already in place in stations throughout Oman Air’s network, the airline is committed to ensuring that policies and procedures relating to safety remain current and are regularly updated.
