Ensuring the safety of Air France flights in nearly 100 countries and 200 cities around the world is a constant concern for the company.
At Air France, 40 security experts work on a daily basis to protect the company’s passengers, staff and assets against any act of unlawful interference: hijacking, terrorist attacks and other anonymous threats. The Security Division is assisted by other departments and at airports by a network of security correspondents to ensure the company’s strategy in this field is optimally applied.
All staff members, whatever their role, are link in the security chain, trained and aware of these issues which are an integral part of daily operations at Air France.
In a highly regulated field, Air France is working on the implementation of security measures in close collaboration with many different stakeholders:
- airports in France and abroad,
- various departments of the Ministries of the Interior, Defence and Foreign Affairs: Air Transport Police, Border Police, International Cooperation, Intelligence, etc.
- the DGAC (French Civil Aviation Authority) in France as well as the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) within the European Union and the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) on a global level.
In addition, to ensure the highest level of protection for its customers, its employees and assets, Air France implements specific additional security measures at some stations.
This responsibility depends on the direct authority of the CEO of Air France.
