Aviation security is regulated at international level (ICAO) as well as at EU level.
The purpose of the regulation is to ensure safe and smooth air travel. Security measures are used to prevent acts of unlawful interference against civil aviation, and these measures are targeted at passengers as well as goods being transported. The security measures are performed by security officers, whose training is monitored by Trafi. Trafi also approves the equipment used for security screening.
More information on passenger security checks is given in the section "For passengers".
