Terrorist Attacks at Airports as a Driving Growth Factor

Terrorist attacks at airports can severely affect the peace and security of a nation. Being a fast and popular mode of transportation, millions of people are flying and crossing borders on a daily basis via airlines. It becomes a scary task especially for border authorities to check on the border activities. Thus, airport security authorities are more focused on updating their current security.
