The French International Security Group ICTS Europe, a leading global operator in Europe, has a major leading position in the US and Canada with over 100 airports, 28 ports and 260 airlines. It also cooperates with Hermes Airports in Cyprus for the provision of security services at Larnaca and Paphos airports, with a number of airlines and with DP WORLD in Limassol port for security services.
This year it organised the annual summit of operational managers from all European countries for airport security in Cyprus.
At the meeting held in Larnaca between 25-26 June, 26 ICTS Group representatives from all over Europe were present. During the summit, the participants had the opportunity to work through current and future challenges facing airports in the field of security, with the aim of reaching innovative solutions for Cyprus’ airline market share and the tourist industry, which is an integral part of the country's economic growth.
Representatives of Hermes Airports, as well as the wider airport community, including members of the Police Department, gave their views on the aviation sector in Cyprus and various ways to improve it.
The ICTS summit also focused on the best practices that can be applied to the Cypriot aviation sector and, moreover, on the best ways of maintaining safety standards and excellent customer service, since tourism is an important factor for the country's development.
According to ICTS’ vice president in Paris, Mr. Ronen Remetz, “With its presence since 2010 in Cyprus, ICTS employs more than 470 people, who, with the certification of the Civil Aviation and Police Department, provide security services unique to the Cypriot market, those of the security controller. We are determined to transfer all possible international know-how in order to improve safety levels in critical transport infrastructure in Cyprus, as tourism and international investment are crucial factors in the development of the Cypriot economy.”
