Security is highest priority at CAK

Posted on May 13, 2010 12:00 am by in Security

Anyone that is involved in the aviation world has had their lives drastically changed in the nine years since 9/11. We have seen more security changes in the last nine years than what occurred in the previous twenty.

I think the most dramatic change was the creation of the TSA and the security threat levels blue, green, yellow, orange, and red (red meaning an attack is imminent). The various security levels give airport security folks like me the tools, restrictions and directions needed to comply with national standards. You may not know this but the aviation world will never go below yellow! And in my opinion, we won't see yellow for a very long time. Terrorists are still trying to disrupt our national air transportation system, so we cannot let our guard down.

So what does all this mean for you, CAK's customer? Anyone who has traveled in the last decade can pretty much feel the difference. Before every flight, TSA agents ask you if you packed your bags nice and neat; if you have any liquids, gels, or paste; and to please take your shoes off so they can x-ray them. Although these procedures seem annoying, these are just a few of the things that we in the security business need to do in an attempt to prevent people, who hate our way of life, from doing harm to you and your family.

What you also may not know is that a lot of our security directives are invisible to air travelers. Security is very serious business. We don't talk about what we are doing behind the scenes to protect security, but let me assure you, I am devoted to making CAK as secure and safe as it can possibly be. We our constantly changing and adapting to new threats, installing new technology, and putting new methods in place to help protect the flying public. Rest assured that safety and security is our highest priority.

No, thanks. I don't like to save money on airfare.
