He Zongkai, vice-president of China Southern Airlines, told a recent air cargo summit in Guangzhou, ‘There can no longer be further upgrading of an airport without an effective security system in place. Security is one of our major concerns, although it would mean additional costs for airport authorities.’
China Southern conducts regular training programs for its staff on passenger and cargo security.

He also said that as the costs for security staff are high, multiple uses of cameras and mobile teams are necessary.
At a national conference on air safety earlier this year, China civil aviation chief Li Jiaxiang said the threat of terrorism still exists and there is a growing need for effective security controls.
