Almost all Australians say that they would be happy with even stricter controls on domestic air travel in order to increase the level of security against a terrorist attack.

But in a clear message to airlines and airports, Australians also expect much more to be done to make flying more secure in Australia.

As part of the Unisys Security Index for May, Australians were asked what they believed airlines, airports and individuals could do to tighten domestic aviation security.

Ninety-eight per cent of Australians said they believed airlines and airports needed to undertake one or more of a number of suggested actions to improve domestic airline security, including greater screening of all luggage and identity verification of every passenger.

But many Australians are also personally prepared to do something about making domestic airline travel safer, including paying more for greater security measures, and participating in a national traveller’s ID scheme.

Greater security measures for baggage and cargo recorded the highest results when people were asked what the airline industry could do to make domestic travel safer:

• Nationally consistent baggage screening at all airports – 91 %
• Nationally consistent screening of all commercial goods carried as cargo – 88 %
• All passengers having to prove their identity before boarding – 90 %
• Nationally consistent passenger baggage tracking – 84 %
• Stricter criteria on hand luggage such as a ban on liquids – 62 %
• Greater restrictions on vehicles at airports and people who are not travelling as passengers – 60 %

Australians also believe there is an important role that passengers can play in helping airlines and airports safeguard domestic airline travel.

More than half of those surveyed said they were happy to pay more for airline tickets in return for increased security measures.

In addition, two-thirds of Australians say they would be willing to participate in a ‘Frequent Traveller ID’ scheme and four out of five say they would be prepared to arrive an extra 30 minutes earlier for more security screening.

“These are very interesting results for the aviation sector, as they clearly indicate that passengers are happy to participate in additional domestic security measures,” said Andrew Barkla, Vice President Unisys Asia-Pacific.

“The message is clear - passengers and the industry alike can work together to tighten the already strict security regime in Australian airports.”

Ninety-eight % of Australians also said they were happy to undertake one or more of the following actions:

• Arrive 30 minutes earlier for extra screening – 84 %
• Provide a fingerprint or biometric to airlines – 71 %
• Participate in a traveller’s ID scheme – 68 %
• Stop taking items such as liquids in hand luggage – 71 %
• Have all bags electronically tagged for monitoring – 91 %
• Arrive at the airport via a ‘secure drop off point’ – 58 %
• Pay extra for tickets for increased security – 55 %

The Unisys Security Index (unisys.com) provides a unique insight into the attitudes of Australians on a wide range of security related issues.
