Yearly Pompidou Group meetings on fighting drug trafficking via air took place online

The 35th meeting of the Airports Group took place on 8 September 2020. Presentations in the first part focused on strengthening airports security: advanced technology versus human factor, insider threats and behavior detection, and capabilities and restrictions in law enforcement. In the second part, drugs and money laundering, difficulties in using Passenger Name Records (PNR) and Passenger Information Units (PIU) and human rights aspects in law enforcement were addressed.

The programme of the 4th meeting on General Aviation, held on 9 September, included presentation of the European General Aviation Handbook that was finalised during the summer, presentations on case studies, intelligence exchange and profiling methods, physical checks and scanning, cooperation with aviation authorities, as well as ways and means to control aircrafts and pilots.
