Further, the movement of staff of other agencies who operate in the airport would be restricted. In the US, additional layers of security for persons working within the airport were introduced. These staffs include airlines staff, luggage loaders, vendors and service support personnel.

It may be recalled that the Parliament was recently informed about the installation of full-body scanners at the pre-embarkation security points. These would replace the door frame metal detectors.

There would also be random checking where people would undergo a physical search and pat down.
