Airport Security Policy

Scope

This policy was developed in response to requirements under the Canadian Aviation Security Regulations that require the Fredericton International Airport Authority (FIAA) to “have a security policy statement that establishes an overall commitment and direction for aerodrome security and sets out the operator’s security objectives.” The policy clearly states the position of FIAA with respect to its commitment to the security of the airport, its users and to identify the role of staff members in regards to airport security.

Policy

With the aim of achieving a leading position among North American small airports, the FIAA is committed to providing services that ensure the functioning of the airport at the highest level of compliance with regulatory standards. We consider airport security to be of paramount importance and, in partnership with FIAA employees, will operate in a manner that ensures that security is a priority and fundamental to FIAA operations and equally important to the commercial business of the company. FIAA Management will, therefore, ensure that all decisions about the airport—large and small—take into account the potential impact on the security of our operations.

In pursuing these goals, management will maintain an active airport Security Program with a focus on continuous improvement. All FIAA personnel are expected to participate in the program and take a proactive role in the identification and reduction of security risks.

Security Objectives

The FIAA security objectives to be achieved through the implementation of our Airport Security Program include:

  • Shaping a proactive security culture of vigilance and awareness that promotes good attitudes towards detecting, revealing and mitigating security risks.
  • Determining in detail the range of competences and responsibilities of employees and management within the realms of security standards.
  • Organizing a training system aimed at increasing security awareness among FIAA employees and tenants.
  • Allocating funds suitable for the realization of undertakings aimed at enhancing overall airport security.
  • Enhancing cooperation and collaboration with our security partners.
  • Implementing effective processes and procedures that comply with all applicable legislative and regulatory requirements.
  • Reviewing all security incidents and breaches including implementation of corrective actions and lessons learned

Achieving these objectives requires the full understanding by everyone in the airport organization (and community) of their security responsibilities and their commitment to fostering a proactive security culture
