Arik Air’s Acting Managing Director, Mr. Chris Ndulue, said the airline has been in the forefront of the fight against illicit drugs and related crimes. “We have invested a lot of money in the procurement of hi-tech equipment like the Morpho Itemiser which is the latest narcotics and explosives detector. The Itemiser is capable of detecting molecular and vapour from drugs.”

The airline’s General Manager, Aviation Security, Mr. Lachlan McNeil, elaborated,“Arik Air has put in place an investigative team made up of ex-police and intelligence officers from other services who mix with our personnel and guests without their knowing.”

In addition to the screening of passengers by Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) security personnel, Arik Air also carries out secondary screening of all passengers prior to boarding of any of its flights.

The airline usually carries out a thorough search of its aircrafts prior to boarding a flight.

Mr. McNeil disclosed that Arik Air only recently engaged the services of a company, ICTS, to train 20 of its security profilers the latest technique of screening passengers while an additional 20 staff were trained in the use of the Itemiser.
